From downtownbrooklyn.com: "It’s not all business in Downtown Brooklyn—the neighborhood is a booming cultural hotspot as well. A report released yesterday by the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership reveals that cultural institutions in the neighborhood attracted more than 4.5 million visitors and generated nearly $310 million in economic activity last year alone."
The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is proud to have our main screening hub at nearby St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights. We are the only independent, international film festival in the world that's all about the Brooklyn scene. And we celebrate independent artists from every part of the borough.
