Scene: Brooklyn

Independent Film and Media Arts

Brooklyn Arts Council's film program showcases the tremendous and diverse film talent based in Brooklyn as well as the best films from emerging filmmakers around the world principally shot in the borough. Our fall 2013 series (October 25 - 29) commemorates the 1st Anniversary of Superstorm Sandy.

Scene: Brooklyn includes a yearly screening and discussion series; special screenings, parties and discussions in partnership with local film and media organizations throughout the year; professional development seminars for filmmakers and film & media organizations; and filmmaker meet ups and social gatherings. 

Brooklyn Arts Council  supports the creation of film and media art by awarding grants to over 15 Brooklyn film and media artists each year, promoting film and media artists and organizations though its online registry and directory, and providing artists with fiscal sponsorship.

Scene: Brooklyn is made possible, in part, by support from the Henry Nias Foundation and the William Talbott Hillman Foundation.
