NYC Indie Film Fest


The 10th Annual NYC Independent Film Festival provides a showcase for indie filmmakers from NYC and around the world to the NYC public & entertainment industry. Indie filmmakers self­fund projects with budgets from $0 - ­$1,000,000 and often overlooked, these filmmakers show extraordinary talent and creativity under tight budgets. The Festival provides filmmakers with the opportunity for potential distribution while meeting fans and promoting their film.

We will screen 250 films, host panels and presentations, as well as after parties, a live script reading, and a live comedy sketch performance! All while hosting hundreds of filmamakers from around the world!
 
2019 submission categories include: Narrative Feature, Short Film (narrative), Super Short Film (narrative), Documentary Fearure, Documentary Short, Music Video, Art/Experimental (short film), Animation (short film), Short Script, Short Sketch Comedy Videos, Virtual Reality, Web Series, TV Pilots.

This will avoid potential problems with incompatible disk formats and will preserve the quality of the movies. We are of course also making sure to have spare hard drives and Macbooks. All  films that we receive are converted into mp4 HD format. Those who have ...
