The Brooklyn International Film Festival (BiFF), was established in 1998 as the first international competitive film festival in New York. Conceptually unique, the festival has grown exponentially each year in terms of number of submissions, program quality and size, international exposure, media coverage, audience attendance. BiFF's mission is to discover, expose, and promote independent filmmakers while drawing worldwide attention to Brooklyn as a center for cinema. Opening Night is scheduled for Friday, June 2, 2006. The opening ceremony will be staged in the Brooklyn Museum's Cantor Auditorium at 8pm. The film program will run from 8:30pm to 10pm. Opening night film is Sangue by Italian director Libero De Rienzo. From 9:00pm to midnight, BiFF stages the opening night concert/party in the Brooklyn Museum's Beaux-Arts Court, with DJ Domewrecka and Avion Travel presented by Arezzo Wave Love Festival.
