Closing Bell: Brooklyn Film Festival Coming Next Week

The Third Annual Art of Brooklyn Film Festival kicks off next week and will screen a total of 40 films with Brooklyn cred. The films include features, shorts, documentaries, experimental/art films, comedies, dramas, horror and suspense, all of which were either filmed in Brooklyn, feature Brooklyn artists, or are about Brooklyn. If These Knishes Could Talk, a documentary looking into the origin of the Brooklyn accent, will run at the festival, as well as Rescue! Brooklyn, a documentary about Brooklyn’s Sean Casey Animal Rescue. The showings take place at St. Francis College’s Founders Hall and Maroney Theaters and St. Joseph College’s Tuohy Hall Theater, starting on May 15.
