B’klyn fest shares opinion

Highlights include drive-in night, kids fest

The eighth Brooklyn Film Festival has plowed through 1,750-plus submissions and selected 160 films to screen at the Brooklyn Museum June 3-12.

This year’s fest, dubbed Opinion 8, will screen films in five categories: feature, docu, animated, experimental and short. All films will address one of these three questions: “Is the world coming together or fragmenting?,” “Are fact and fiction blurring?,” or “Is the media losing objectivity?”

Fest will hold a drive-in night June 6 and 7, and a Kids Film Fest on June 5. Opening night will take place at the Brooklyn Museum’s Cantor AuditoriumJune 3, followed by an after-party in the museum’s courtyard.

Screenings will run from 2 p.m. to midnight June 4, 5 and 11 and from 6 p.m. to midnight June 6-10.
