We are thrilled to announce the 4th Season of the Crown Heights Film Festival (CHFF) begins next week, on Monday, October 21. Please join us in congratulating this year's selected filmmakers, who come from as far away as Iran, Israel, Germany, and Cuba as well as from our own backyard here in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
Visit our website www.crownheightsfilms.org for links to film trailers and festival information, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter @CrownHeightsFF for up-to-date festival information and highlights.
The week kicks-off with a "Music & Film" Roundtable on Monday, followed by film screenings Tuesday - Friday evenings and a Saturday matinee at FiveMyles. Each film screening is a unique journey through a variety of film genres (animation, cross-disciplinary/transmedia, documentary, family, feature length and short narrative) with films played in sequence one right after the other. The screenings begin with a sociable happy hour and include an intermission. Afterwards, there is a group Q&A with the selected filmmakers. Admission to the Roundtable and all screenings is free; donations gratefully accepted.
The festival week ends Saturday night at FREECANDY with our "CHFF Benefit Celebration" at which we will congratulate all of this season's filmmakers and present the award-winning filmmakers with artworks by Malcolm A Davis II. The celebration includes a fantastic line-up of Brooklyn musicians including DJ Frei Speech of Ahficionados, Kenny Dark featuring RGK2, The Soon-Another, and Bree and the Whatevers. Tickets are $10 at the door, $8 in advance. All proceeds go directly towards the costs of running the festival.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the filmmakers who submitted, as well as our volunteers, partners, sponsors, and supporters, whose support makes CHFF possible.
Thank you for continuing to support the Crown Heights Film Festival. We hope to see you October 21-26!
