2nd Annual Brooklyn SciFi Film Festival (virtual)
The Brooklyn SciFi Film Festival returns for a second year with independent science fiction / fantasy / horror films from around the world!
The Brooklyn SciFi Film Festival (BSFFF) returns for a second year, continuing its mission to bring a diverse slate of independent, SciFi films to one of the most innovative and creative hubs in the world: Brooklyn. The week-long film festival will feature works by some of the most dynamic new voices in the genre including select film screenings from BSFFF’s New York film partners Kino Lorber, Grasshopper Film, Projectr.tv, and Film Movement.
All film selections will be available to stream free online September 20th through the 26th with live, in-person screenings to be held in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at the Wythe Hotel Screening Room on September 25th.
Presented by Cyber-NY, a Brooklyn-based digital agency that works with film and media distributors to build on-demand video and e-commerce services, created on the LOGIC digital streaming platform.
The Festival, born out of Brooklyn’s DIY spirt attracted hundreds of independent SciFi films from around the world. More than 10,000 unique viewers logged on to the virtual festival in 2020.
This year’s BSFFF will feature more than 150 films from 18 countries along with all-new exclusive online events, as well as an in-person screening party, and filmmaker commentary with the addition of a new musical element called The Future Sounds of Brooklyn; a compilation of SciFi-inspired music from around the world that will be available to stream during the festival and download as an album.
The Sixth Borough returns for a second season with nightly episodes that present three fantastic science fiction short films united by a common theme. You might think of the festival as Black Mirror meets Twilight Zone but for independent SciFi.
Official film selections will be announced on September 1st, with awards and recognition presented September 25th.
