The Crown Heights Film Festival offers a lineup of films to attendees at its national event in Brooklyn, New York including short film, “Sly Art,” directed by Cassell A. Ferere and produced by Pascal Bernier.
The Crown Heights Film Festival (CHFF) is a social forum in Brooklyn, NY, which showcases a diverse range of exceptional local and international films curated in a way to encourage dialogue and audience interaction. The Festival will showcase exceptional local and international films, including Ferere’s, “Sly Art,” a short film two years in the making.
“Directing this film was a challenge and accomplishment after two and a half years in development,” said Ferere. “We are excited to share the product of our hard work and dedication with an active community of filmmakers, artists, musicians, Brooklyn residents, and our friends and family at a festival passionate about fostering collaboration, cultural integration and local business growth.”
“Sly Art,” is a film about the human condition that introduces an audience to a world of ruthless and heartless acts. Taking place in the heart of Chinatown in New York City, “Sly Art,” delves into the lives of characters struggling with their demons and morals in which the past, present, and future arrive at a single moment of destiny and disillusionment.

About The Crown Heights Film Festival
The Crown Heights Film Festival (CHFF) is a movement fueled by an active community of filmmakers, artists, musicians, and Brooklyn residents to increase public access to evocative and innovative films. The Festival aims to provide a voice and opportunities for filmmakers, to foster cross-arts collaboration, and to provide a framework for discourse between filmmakers and the wider Brooklyn community. The non-profit festival is supported by the Brooklyn Arts Council and is fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas.
CHFF is a collaboration between photographer/cameraman Pedro Martí and artist/curator Erin Gleason. The non-profit festival was founded in 2009 with the aim of creating a film-based social forum in Crown Heights – a rapidly changing neighborhood navigating a number of socio-economic issues including racial and cultural integration, local business growth, and police presence under “zero tolerance” directives. CHFF believes the community at large, through the medium of film, benefits from a festival that reflects the diversity Crown Heights embodies.
