Brooklyn filmmakers to show their work on “The Big Screen”
This is The Big Screen’s inaugural year as a month-long event centered around various Brooklyn indie film series.
“We are excited to do the first one we hope to get a good reception,” said Anthony DeVito, who explained that the selection process for this festival is completely independent of AoBFF. The participants are chosen by local film festivals and AoBFF serves as the host for the event, responsible for getting the word out and expanding the amount of viewers.
“We partnered with independent film series that screen in smaller Brooklyn venues like back of bars and we have worked to increase their audiences by showing their films in larger theaters,” said DeVito. “We brought them (smaller film festivals) all together and put them under our banner.”
