The Inaugural Bedford Stuyvesant Crown Heights Film Festival Celebrates People of Color in Film

It’s film festival season and Brooklyn has joined in on the fun.

Amid a Q&A, after the screening, the artists uncovered procedures for making the Brooklyn-based film, including closet strategies and finding monetary support for a film made in only 13 days.
