Several Canadian feature and short films have been programmed in 11th Annual Brooklyn International Film Festival (BiFF)including feature Carny directed by Toronto-based Alison Murray. The documentary is an intimate, gritty and poetic adventure following the lives of 'carnys' - traveling fairground workers whose experiences are outside the normalcy of most North Americans. Murray whose last documentary saw her cover 9000 miles on freight trains to document the lives of ‘hobos’, teams up with photographer Virginia Lee Hunter to follow the fair. A visually stunning and emotionally engaging film.
BiFF was established in 1998 as the first international competitive film festival in New York. BiFF’s primary goal is to connect filmmakers to distribution companies and expose them to the media. Many films that have premiered at BiFF in past years went on to be released theatrically and/or are available at video stores near you.
