Filmmakers attend Bronx Int’l Film Festival

Filmmakers from all over the world rolled into the Bronx this weekend for the 11th annual Bronx International Film Festival.



A wide variety of films from short stories to documentaries will be screened at the event.



The film festival started off as a small festival, where up-and-coming Bronx filmmakers could get an audience to watch their films. "International" has since been added to the event's title, because so many writers and directors from across the globe wanted to be a part of it.



Some filmmakers have used the platform to catapult their careers, like the director of "True Detective," starring Matthew McConaughey.



The festival runs through Sunday.
