2010 Brooklyn International Film Festival

The 13th Brooklyn International Film Festival (BiFF) takes place this June 4th to 13th, 2010. This year, BiFF will present over 100 films from 26 different countries. As the Director of Programming for this year's festival, I led a team of screeners and programmers to select these films from a field of more then 2,400 submissions coming from 92 different countries.

While all of the selected films merit equal attention, several have subjects related directly to this website's themes, especially in the documentary category. Locally, Our House documents an illegal Christian Anarchist squat in an abandoned Williamsburg warehouse, while Freddy's tells the story of a historic bar in Prospect Heights that was recently closed by the controversial Atlantic Yards development.
