The Greenpoint Film Festival is gearing up for its second year, taking submissions from the public, in addition to curated programs, for the first time.

Categories for the festival, hosted by Brooklyn’s Woven Spaces arts organization, include experimental/avant-garde, narrative, documentary, and animation. The festival is also accepting features, shorts and some student works.

A jury of roughly 10 people will vote on films to select for the festival, according to Director Rosa Valado.

“Everything will be seen, everything will be looked at,” she said of the submissions.
