I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful weekend! It was such an honor to have our world premiere at the BGFF. It was so great meeting you and so many other talented, intelligent and fun women in the industry. Looking forward to next year! – Bianca Jamotte, Writer, Twinkle

Brooklyn Girl Film Festival is by far the best organized and well run festival I’ve experienced. Great communication, great exposure for the filmmakers involved, and quality work represented. Such a positive experience. I applaud your efforts to promote women in the industry – it’s important that our voices are heard. Thank you Brooklyn Girl! I will definitely enter again next year! – Lisa Jay, Writer/Director, An Alien Fairytale

Thank you for selecting “A Cool Dark Place” for the festival. We had a great time last night meeting the filmmakers and experiencing the screening in Brooklyn. The BKGFF team was top notch and the films were very entertaining. It’s a great thing you are doing not only for women in film but for film in general. Keep it up!- James Howell, Executive Producer, Peregrine Films

Thank you for the opportunity to screen my short at the festival. There was a lot of positive energy. Residing in Arizona, it was well worth the trip to Brooklyn. A few of my NY friends attended for the first time and they loved it. It was wonderful to see a lot of men as well supporting female filmmakers. Although we share womanhood, we are diverse in our stories and artistry. I hope to see this festival grow and be a mainstay in years to come. – Aurora Betson – Writer/Director, The Ordinary Life of an Unwilling All-American Exotic

I was really blown away by the films that screened at Brooklyn Girl Film Festival. These are film Makers that have big careers ahead of them, many very established already and really very cool people doing very important work. April, The festival director and the festival team made the whole experience enjoyable as a filmmaker and an audience member. The talent here was pretty amazing! The Brooklyn Girl festival has the pulse of upcoming film makers from all over the world!!! – Megan Corry, Director “The Smell of Sand”

Thank you so much for inviting us and our film “Impulses” and thus give it the opportunity to spread its reflections regarding women and creation, the links with procreation and the fact that there are still missing girls out there to take the lead as artists in the public space ! Let’s follow the hitch willing to come out, in spite of the odds that would refrain us to fully express ourselves creatively. The world needs the Yin part to be balanced. Let’s go girls!! – Marie-Pascale Laurencelle, Director and Co-Writer, Impulses

Just wanted to say thank you for organizing the Festival. My guests and I had a great time. The Social Media Marketing workshop was very informative. Hope you’ll make this an annual event. – Sharifa Williams, writer/director “Passengers of 7D”

I want to thank you for all the work you did to make the BGFF happen. I loved seeing the other films, and really liked the feel and the energy of the room and the audience. You did a great job. The brunch might have been my favorite part, I have to admit. Talking to the other women was inspiring. Also I want to make sure you know that Frances Lozada (host) was great – very welcoming and intense in just the right ways – and always there if we had questions. – Cheri Robartes, director,“Gypsy Moon”:
