What is Wallabout?
Named after the historic area of Brooklyn once known as Wallabout Bay, the Wallabout Film Festival is a student film festival produced and curated by an interdisciplinary team of students from Pratt Institute. Showcasing films by innovative student filmmakers from around the world, Wallabout is a platform for students to screen their work to a diverse community of peers as well as industry professionals, initiating conversation and collaboration. Set in Brooklyn, the annual event contributes to the vibrant creative culture of NYC.
