The Seventh Annual Brooklyn International Film Festival, "Stretch Edition," kicks off June 4 at the Brooklyn Museum. One hundred films from 30 countries will be shown at this international film competition, which continues through June 13.

"Our festival is truly a mirror of society and the current events that shape our lives and provoke our emotions," says BIFF’s director and founder Marco Ursino.

Among the films to be shown are "Everything Taboo," a documentary about the Boy George-Rosie O’Donnell Broadway flop, directed by Mike Nicholls (June 9 at 8 pm); the winner of the best director and best performance awards at Sundance, "Down to the Bone," a feature about a cocaine-addicted suburban mom, directed by Debra Granik (June 12 at 9 pm); "Dead Heat Under the Shrubs" (pictured), an Iranian film about a murderess in pursuit of a boy who witnessed her crime, by Esmael Barari (June 10 at 8 pm); and the Oscar-nominated short documentary "Ferry Tales," about what goes on in the ladies bathroom on the Staten Island Ferry, by Katja Esson (June 13 at 4 pm).

New to this year’s festival is a children’s program on June 6 at 2 pm and 4 pm. The Brooklyn Museum is located at 200 Eastern Parkway at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights. For more information about the BIFF schedule, or to order tickets, visit
