In its ninth consecutive year, the Brooklyn Academy of Music is hosting its annual BAMcinemaFest from June 14th until June 25th. The festival will feature the best American independent films, including features, documentaries, and shorts.

Emerging artists from the New York area have the chance to present their work on a platform right in their hometown. Directors of shorts have their opportunity to showcase their feature length films, and new artists can enter the stage by showing off their short films.

Films in the Spotlight for this years’ festival include: Gemini, an LA-set murder mystery from director Aaron Katz; En el Septimo Dia, a funny view on life in New York as an undocumented Mexican immigrant from acclaimed director Jim McKay; Landline, a film directed by Gillian Robespierre about the troubling story of Manhattan-based sisters discover that their father is cheating on their mother; A Ghost Story, a take on the classic story of a ghost coming back to the home in which he lived stars, Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara; Golden Exits, an uneasy comedy from director Alex Ross Perry.
