Established in 2017, the BedStuy Film Festival (“BSFF”) showcases films from diverse perspectives. Founded by Nickie Robinson, this nonprofit organization not only seeks to increase the exposure of filmmakers from diverse backgrounds, but also is committed to spotlighting new voices and views, especially local ones, from a variety of cultural, gender, racial, and age perspectives.
The 3rd Annual BSFF will take place from October 23 – 25, 2020, at various locations in the heart of the Brooklyn, New York neighborhood for which the festival is named.
Each day, the festival will spotlight a film chosen by the founders that align with the festival’s mission of showcasing diverse voices. In addition, the BSFF will offer panel discussions, which will focus on the nuts and bolts of filmmaking—from screenwriting to raising capital for an indie film and new distribution models.
Submissions for the 2020 BSFF will begin on April 1, 2020. Categories include Narrative Short Films, Narrative Documentary Shorts, and Narrative Foreign Films.
