The Brooklyn Film Festival has created some of the most bizarre ads you will ever see. Why? Because they can.
Founded in 1998, Brooklyn Film Festival is a celebrated independent film festival that doesn’t shy away from the abstract and the avant-garde in the films it features.
Over the years the festival has always resisted the pressure to conform, to be more like other festivals, or to show more mainstream films. Going on 20 years now the festival has always stayed true to themselves.
So to promote its 20th anniversary the festival is embracing the absurd with ads that let potential festival goers know Brooklyn Film Festival does whatever it wants. With commercials that you can’t unsee, you might find yourself asking “why?”. The Brooklyn Film festival has an answer: “Because we can”.
