About Page


The GREENPOINT FILM FESTIVAL had its inception in 2011 founded and produced by Woven Spaces, INC. Built around a not-for-profit structure abiding by a simple purpose:
To create a focal point in critically-acclaimed, thought-provoking, and upcoming filmmakers while simultaneously pushing the envelope in the local community and beyond. The festival is inspired by the stories yet untold and focuses on giving voices to the voiceless in the filmmaking industry while simultaneously bringing together the dazzling neighborhood of Greenpoint located in North Brooklyn. 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 thought-provoking and critically acclaimed stories, as well as a showcase for the fine arts and brilliant films.

GFF is also focused on expanding the local film network in North Brooklyn. The arts are historically-proven building blocks of stories that we tell our elders, our peers and our youth with hopes that more stories will sprout through the ages standing the test of time. The GFF is positioning itself to be a prime incentive of inspiration for the local community and economic development with fundamental tools for communicating trends and ideas. We support philosophical and social movements towards sustainable use of our resources, future-minded urban planning, and growing partnerships across several disciplines and ways of life. The Greenpoint Film Festival hopes to be a cornerstone of visionary commitment towards this end and a principal resource to artists and to the community of North Brooklyn.
