OCTOBER 28 & 29th, 2016

The Crown Heights Film Festival (CHFF) brings exceptional local and international short film to Central Brooklyn audiences. The festival showcases a curated selection of short films: narratives, animation, documentaries, and cross-disciplinary/experimental films. Our mission is to provide a voice and opportunities for filmmakers in short form, to foster cross-arts collaboration, and to provide a social forum for filmmakers, Central Brooklyn residents, and the wider arts community.
