Hello Filmmakers,

The Crown Heights Film Festival (CHFF) brings exceptional local and international short film to Brooklyn audiences. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for filmmakers in short form to foster cross-arts collaboration and to provide a social forum for filmmakers. The festival has become an annual tradition held at FiveMyles Gallery in one of Brooklyn's most beautiful, diverse and vibrant neighborhoods.

CHFF facilitates an atmosphere of creativity and cultural diversity, bringing content creators, artists, writers and movie buffs together under one roof to meet and collaborate.

The festival is hosted by FiveMyles, a Non-Profit organization incorporated in 1999. Five Myles' mission is to advance public interest in innovative experimental work, to identify and exhibit the work of underrepresented artists and to engage the local community through participation in the arts.

  • I always love being a part of the Crown Heights Film Festival. There's something so lovely about screening films in a space surrounded by other visual art. I really enjoyed the other filmmakers I met there and the films are so diverse and thought-provoking. Finally, CHFF is organized by some really kind, chill, hardworking, wonderful people. Thanks, CHFF! It's always a joy and an honor to have my films here.

    I had such amazing experience at the Crown Heights Film Festival. . It’s hosts a very intimate crowd with a diverse selection of films. Hanne Tierney has founded a wonderful art space which showcases a great deal of Cynthia Chatman's work. Cynthia also help organize the social media for each filmmaker. Such an amazing job. Marine Cornuet runs a very lovely program with an informative Q&A. Giovanni stays steadfast on the pc making sure all films are loaded and running up to speed. Big thanks to Ryan for capturing great moments. Great team and lovely program. I was honored to have my film showcased here.

    I loved this festival. They had a very interesting and diverse selection of films. They were communicative, and promoted the films and filmmakers on social media and their website. The screening location at the fivemyles gallery was awesome, and the day I went the films screened to a packed house! It was a great experience!
