Welcome! Possibility Begins Here.
Brooklyn Free Speech is a New York Emmy-winning community television network that amplifies and honors alternative voices in media. The initiative seeks to empower Brooklynites with media dreams to share their brilliance, talent, and creativity with the world.
The Media Center gives Brooklynites the tools and know-how to professionally create and cablecast their own television programs on Brooklyn Free Speech television, a community television network displaying programs that reflect the borough's diversity of thought and culture.
We provide all Brooklynites with access to television and podcast studio facilities, equipment, and free or low-cost media training. We are located in the heart of the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District at BRIC House, 647 Fulton Street.
The majority of our facility is reserved for use by our Certified Community Producers.
