It’s a sort of Netflix specifically for Brooklyn filmmakers.
The curated set of films entirely from local makers works through Vimeo, according to Anthony DeVito, The Art of Brooklyn’s communications director. The revenue is split 50/50 between the film festival and the film’s producers (after whatever fees Vimeo is taking).
Films on Brooklyn On Demand are exclusive to the platform, according to its about page. We have covered similar services in the past, including Nukhu and VHX, neither of which are exclusive at this point.
Here are a few film trailers you can check out and rent through the service. There are only nine films available so far. The fifth Art of Brooklyn Film Festival will take place May 13-17.-30-
