Brooklyn Film Festival Exchange winners announcements - Kickstarter Headquarters rooftop lounge and garden

Brooklyn Film Festival wraps up THRESHOLD the festival's 21st edition in Sunday June 11, 2018 with an awards ceremony at Windmill Studios announcing the winners. Total prizes (products, services, cash) equaling $50k were distributed. A total of 29 awards were handed out.

"It has been a wonderful festival. Everything we were hoping would happen, actually did," said Marco Ursino, Brooklyn Film Festival Executive Director. "We envisioned this edition as a sanctuary where people of different backgrounds and cultures could have an honest and civilized conversation stimulated by 119 projects which, I feel, did bring back interest in politics and in the social condition of people who live so far away and yet experience the same things we are going through here in the U.S."

"Bad times make great art" was the tag line of this 2018 festival. Features and shorts from 30 countries some first time screenings, world premieres, east coat debuts or USA bows were include in the 119 films in the program.
