Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF), New York’s longest running international-competitive film festival, is proud to announce its 25th edition, Unthinkable.

Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF) announces the film lineup for its 25th edition, themed “Unthinkable.” The 2022 edition will feature 29 World Premieres, 21 US bows, 21 east coast debuts, and 36 first-time screenings in NY. In total, BFF will show in competition 143 features and shorts from 34 countries. The full lineup includes 12 narrative features and eight documentary features, highlighted in this release. The festival will also present 40 narrative shorts, 20 documentary shorts, 23 animations, and 21 experimental films. Furthermore, 19 films will play as part of one of the most successful BFF programs, now in its 18th year, KidsFilmFest.

One of the German contributions will be “Meta”, directed bei Antje Heyn.

META is an animated film that takes up topics such as change, transience, cycles, connection, and interaction in a playful and experimental way. The aim is to Show that everything consists of many parts and that in the end we are all connected with each other.

Antje Heyn is a Berlin based animation director and illustrator. Her work is inspired by daily observations of urban living and culture as well as nature and

animals. Besides setting her heart on creating characters and bringing them to life she teaches animation at universities as well as art academies and is running the Protoplanet Studio.

Over the course of the 10-day festival, BFF will present 35 two-hour film programs online via the festival website, and the same 35 programs will be shown in person at Windmill Studios in Greenpoint, with select programs at Union Docs in Williamsburg. The online lineup will be available 24/7 for the entire 10-day festival. The indoor event will feature five programs a day on weekends, and three programs a day on weekdays. Each program is two-hours long. To find out more in-depth how the 25th BFF is going to work, both online and at our indoor venues, check the BFF’s Website.
