9th Annual Bushwick Film Festival Now Accepting Submissions!

The 9th Annual Bushwick Film Festival is now open for Submissions!


Founded in 2007, The Bushwick Film Festival has evolved from a local NYC festival to an international festival, hailed as “one of Brooklyn’s most celebrated cinematic events,” by Fox News, Tribeca Film and the Brooklyn Borough’s President.  We love daring, independent filmmakers and boast an enthusiastic, forward-thinking audience.
