The Greenpoint Film Festival is produced by Woven Spaces, Inc, a Brooklyn-based non-profit arts organization designed to create art/community projects. Founded in 2011, the festival is inspired by the regenerative opportunities in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, once labeled one of the most polluted places in the United States. The themes of renewal and reclamation continue to play a major role in the social and creative fabric of the Greenpoint Film Festival as it constantly expands into a platform for new thinking, as well as a showcase for great art and great film.
GFF is also inspired by the expanding film industry in North Brooklyn, particularly in Greenpoint. The arts are historically-proven building blocks in community and economic development and primary tools for communicating trends and ideas. We support philosophical and social movements towards a more sustainable use of our resources, future-minded urban planning, and growing partnerships across the disciplines. The Greenpoint Film Festival hopes to be a cornerstone of visionary commitment towards this end and a resource to artists and to the community.
The 2014 Greenpoint Film Festival takes place this year from September 18 through 21 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, four days of films and panel discussion. The competitive section consists of three categories, narrative, documentary, and experimental, with films selected by a jury of six judges, The curated portion, including an Environmental Section, with special emphasis on Greenpoint, a David Lynch Foundation Program, and a Community Section – given to the community for a film of their choice- completes this year’s film lineup.
