Honoring the filmmakers at the 19th Brooklyn Film Festival

After 12 days of non-stop film screenings, parties and Q&As, the 19th Annual Brooklyn Film Festival wrapped on Sunday night. I learned so much programming the narrative features and met some talented filmmakers. Very grateful to the volunteer screeners who helped me watch films all winter: Matt Brandenburgh, R.J. Foster, Jimmy Gartly, Taneka Morris, Robert Murray, Sarah Pirozek and Laurie Weltz. And glad I didn't have to be a judge but thrilled with the choices the jury (Marilyn Agrelo, David Chachere, Peter Christian Hall, Sarah Pirozek, Laurie Weltz) made.

I'll share more about the experience soon, but in the meantime, check out the winners and watch for their films in the coming year.
