The Brooklyn Underground Film Festival proudly continues its tradition of being New York’s premier festival for new and emerging filmmakers to showcase their films. Celebrating its fourth season, the festival will be held April 19 – 23 at the Brooklyn Lyceum in Park Slope.
More than 3,000 patrons attended last year’s festival and this year will be unlike any other. In January, the Brooklyn Brewery hosted the Last Call for Submissions party, which drew in hundreds of guests and last-minute film submissions. Having received more than 1,000 film submissions, the fourth annual festival will showcase the freshest, most innovative voices in underground film including comedies, dramas, documentaries, and experimental work. In addition, screenings will be accompanied by Q&A sessions with filmmakers, and our first-ever panel discussions with members of the artistic community and film industry. The Brooklyn Underground Film Festival also hosts an art exhibit, which will be on display at the Brooklyn Lyceum for three months.
Confirmed recording artists performing at the festival’s after-parties are Har Mar Superstar and the Hunting Party, with more to be announced.
What began five years ago as a largely do-it-yourself project, which screened dozens of local and international films in a makeshift theater in DUMBO, has now become the premier film festival for exhibiting independent film and art outside the mainstream arena.
Tickets are $8 and can be purchased through the Brooklyn Underground Film Festival’s website beginning in April 2006.
