The Bushwick Film Festival returns October 25th - 29th for its 16th edition


Beloved Film Festival Returns for 5 days of Live Screenings, Special Events and more!



The Bushwick Film Festival (BFF) is excited to announce it will celebrate its 16th anniversary from October 25th - October 29th. Inspired by the notion of the "Sweet Sixteen," a time of personal growth, self-discovery, and newfound independence, this year’s festival theme revolves around exploring and embracing our passage into life’s next chapter, through cinema. Tickets to its 16th anniversary edition are now available at


The festival is excited to continue its partnership with Williamsburg Cinemas where all festival films will screen. To celebrate its Sweet 16, this year, audiences will delve into the themes of coming-of-age, self-realization, and the quest for personal freedom, all captured beautifully through the cinematic lens. The selected films will embody these narratives, offering stories of transformation, the pursuit of identity, and the leap into a new stage of life. 


Turning 16 traditionally symbolizes growth and discovery, but these transformative moments are not bound by age,” shares founder, Kweighbaye Kotee. “We find defining moments at every juncture and during every transition. As we usher in the 16th Bushwick Film Festival, we're celebrating more than just cinema; we're embracing the journey, the lessons, and the stories that have brought us here. Here's to life’s defining chapters and the many stories that intertwine with them.”


The festival not only features an exciting lineup of films but also offers a range of special events. These include the Opening Night Redcarpet Reception, presented by Spectrum, on October 25th at Brooklyn Borough Hall, where guests can enjoy specialty cocktails by Johnnie Walker Blended Scotch Whisky. Additionally, there will be a Movie Industry Conference held at Be Electric Studios and a lively Sweet 16 Party at Lot 45.


The Movie Industry Conference promises a full day of enriching experiences, including panel discussions and conversations designed for industry professionals and filmmakers seeking valuable insights and networking opportunities. It provides attendees a unique chance to connect with like-minded professionals and expand their network.


Over the past 16 years, BFF has showcased the works of nearly 1000 independent filmmakers from Brooklyn and more than 50 different countries. The BFF has evolved into one of Brooklyn's most highly anticipated cinematic events and is celebrated for its significant contributions to the borough's artistic, cultural, and economic development. Among the 125+ films featured in this year's programming, approximately 10 filmmakers will be honored with awards across various categories such as Best Feature (Narrative/Doc), Best Short (Doc/Narrative), Best Web Series, and more.
