The 13th annual Bushwick Film Festival will go virtual for the first time.

From October 21 to 25, the five-day affair will feature virtual screenings, events and panels for audiences from around the world.

This year’s theme, which is so fitting, is transformation. The festival chose the symbol of a butterfly to embody the theme.

“Our butterfly glows and emerges from the electricity surrounding it, symbolizing profound transformation and honoring the energy it has to manifest to get there,” said festival director Kweighbaye Kotee.

Films will be available to watch on a secure streaming platform sponsored by Spectrum. Panels and conversations can also be watched on an online events platform. Live music and other content will be available to livestream.

The Bushwick Film Festival, since its inception, has showcased films by the best and most diverse emerging filmmakers in Brooklyn and across the world.

Select passes to the film festival are available now, and individual tickets will go on sale September 15.
