This year’s edition of the Brooklyn International Film Festival, “Opinion 8,” which kicks off at the Brooklyn Museum on June 3, has a lineup featuring 150 films in five categories (feature, documentary, animation, experimental and short films) that respond to a range of current events and topics.

“Steal Me,” the opening night film, directed by American filmmaker Melissa Painter, tells the story of 15-year-old Jake (Danny Alexander), who comes looking for his mother in a small Montana town. He befriends Tucker (Hunter Parrish), whose family takes him in, but starts taking the family’s possessions before starting an affair with neighbor Grace (Toby Poser), a newly single mom who’s twice his age.

The 7 pm screening of “Steal Me” will be followed by an opening night party with DJ Jolene and a performance by flamenco guitarist Romero.

BIFF continues through June 12 with even more provocative fare, along with BIFF’s first-ever “kidsfilmfest” on June 5, from 1 pm to 5 pm.

The BIFF screenings will take place at the Brooklyn Museum’s Cantor Auditorium, 200 Eastern Parkway at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights.

Tickets to the opening night film and party are $25. For a complete list of films, screening dates and times, go to
