This space is meant to provide you with the visibility, inclusivity, and the agency to examine the stories that excite you, the artists that bring them to life, and the ecosystems that work to get them in front of audiences.

Q&A with Filmmaker @tess__harrison

“I think I am terrified of losing someone - so finding a way to visualize that space in between life and #death is comforting to me,” says Bushwick Film Festival alumna Tess Harrison about her upcoming film, The Light Upstate, which explores #grief and its myriad of complexities. Harrison is a #filmmaker and #actor whose momentum is on the rise. Her work in short narrative film and music videos shows her capacity to tell visually and narratively exciting stories in just a few short minutes.

Soon we’ll have the opportunity to see what Harrison can do with the feature-length format in her directorial debut, The Light Upstate, an adaptation of her 2018 short Take Me Out with the Stars, an official selection of the 11th Annual Bushwick Film Festival.

Film Review by by Aubrey Benmark (@zodiacguru17)

Read and Listen on the Bushwick Film Festival's blog! *Linked in bio*

The HBO documentary Tina delves into the personal life and career of rock icon Tina Turner. Utilizing never-before-released sound recordings and archival footage, the film exposes how media coverage of her abusive first marriage to Ike Turner furthered her traumatization, but never overcast Tina’s phenomenal talent.

Brief History of The Bushwick Film Festival + IFundWomen Fundraising Campaign

Hey folxs! BFF founder @Kweighbaye here! Here is a brief history of the BFF I delivered during the opening night show of the 2020 BFF!

If you believe in our mission and the work that we do, please take a moment to make a donation to our #IFundWomen campaign.

CAMPAIGN PAGE ALSO LINKED IN BIO:
https://ifundwomen.com/projects/bushwick-film-festival

We launched this campaign after being selected by Lucy Liu to receive the #JaneWalker • IFundWomen’s First Women Grant for our groundbreaking work in film and entertainment! The additional funds raised will go towards supporting our 2021 season which will be our 14th Annual Festival.

The IFundWomen First Women grant program was created in partnership with 10 powerful icons including #LucyLiu, #HalleBerry and #BillieJeanKing to celebrate the achievements of women and their boundary-breaking moments on their journey towards a monumental first.

After losing a considerable amount of income due to the pandemic, we needed support to keep our business going. Not only did this grant help with our payroll costs, but also being recognized by such an incredible network reminded us that our work is important.

And our work is very important! A recent study we conducted in partnership with Pace University students, found that less than 10% of U.S. festivals are owned by women of color. With festivals becoming the new gatekeeper for creators to make connections to networks, producers and distributors, owners must also be diverse in order for new perspectives and diverse voices to rise.

In addition, for nearly 14 years, the Bushwick Film Festival has become an industry staple for new talent and a premiere voice for independent cinema in Brooklyn. We have years of great work under our belt and we plan to do many more years of amazing work with the support of our community!

Please take a moment to contribute to our mission by giving what you can. If you can’t give financially, please help spread the word by liking and sharing our campaign.

Thank you in advance for your support!

With love and gratitude,
Kweighbaye and The BFF Family
