Pass the popcorn.

The sixth annual Greenpoint Film Festival will hit the borough this weekend, featuring four days of competitive submissions and curated programs — all right here in Brooklyn.

The screenings of both shorts and feature-length films – to be held at the Wythe Hotel Screening Room, 80 Wythe Avenue – will take place from Thursday, May 4 through Sunday, May 7 at various times.

Screenings were selected via a panel of six judges, narrowed down from hundreds of submissions in the Narrative, Documentary, Experimental and Animation categories.

The Greenpoint Film Festival is produced by Brooklyn-based non-profit arts organization Woven Spaces and is “inspired by the regenerative opportunities in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, once labeled one of the most polluted places in the United States,” according to organizers.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. For more information or a full schedule of screenings, visit, www.greenpointfilmfestival.org.
