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 6th Annual Greenpoint Film Festival takes place this year from May 4th-7th, 2017 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, four days of films and panel discussion. GFF presents an exciting schedule of carefully selected shorts and feature-length films, chosen by a panel of six judges from hundreds of submissions in four categories: Narrative, Documentary, Experimental, and Animation.
