PICAre you a filmmaker or film enthusiast? Do you absolutely love indie film culture? Want to know what it takes to coordinate an indie film festival?

The BFF is more than a festival – we are a community with a core team of diverse voices in a time where “diversity” is finally at the forefront. Our Interns make this possible and they become an extension of the BFF mission. If you want to be part of a team that encourages and empowers new ideas, then come join us in bringing great stories to Bushwick!
