This evolving program includes a flagship week of screenings presented in partnership with venues throughout Brooklyn each May, special screenings and media arts events throughout the year, professional development seminars for film and media artists, and filmmaker meet ups. Brooklyn Arts Council also supports film and media artists and organizations through grants, fiscal sponsorship and its online registry and directory.
Scene: Brooklyn serves Brooklyn and the wider New York community by providing quality film and media arts programming that reflects Brooklyn's diversity. It also gives audiences an opportunity to get acquainted with the artists who live in their borough, and a chance to see non-commercial films locally.
