The Haiti Film Festival highlights the cinematic work of Haitians in and out of Haiti. The June 24 weekend event, presented by Haiti Cultural Exchange, is now in its fifth edition. The second night of the festival showcased films by Haitian filmmakers based in Brooklyn and Haiti. A few scenes captured from that evening appear here.
