Closing Bell: Brooklyn Film Festival


    The Brooklyn Film Festival is back for its 17th year with 107 films. The international festival includes some films about or made in Brooklyn, including a short documentary called Third Shift, which follows two former Domino workers who return to the now-defunct factory space. The theme of this year’s festival is “formula,” as in what is a winning formula to create a successful independent film? Or can film be formula-free? Aside from an invitation-only party tonight, the festival starts May 30 and runs through June 8 at indieScreen, Wythe Hotel and Windmill Studios, all in Williamsburg. The festival ends with an awards ceremony. The full lineup can viewed here. Above, a still from opening night narrative feature length film “I Believe in Unicorns.”
