New York No Limits Film Series

New York No Limits Film Series is seeking new independent short films for our Spring Film Series in March 2011. The NYNL 2011 Winter Film Series was concluded on January 29th 2011.  It was a great success and the turn out was tremendous. Please continue to send NYNL your films, as we continue to grow the film series we will continue to grant prizes and offer support.  NYNL would like to remind the filmmakers that a major component of this festival is to program the best from all over the world.

If a filmmaker considers his film experimental or exploring a taboo subject; that's the film we want to program. The forum we wish to create is a festival whose principle foundation is to make the festival about daring films that possess interesting narrative. The short film is an interesting art form because it can almost force the filmmaker to be more creative, more daring in exploring themes. NYNL knows that many films are created with much hard work and often, the filmmakers cash. NYNL aims to encourage film directors by curating the type of work that does push the boundary of commercial short films.
The deadline for entry to the NYNL 2011 Spring Film Series is February 15th, 2011. All genres, all taboos, every new idea in the international community is welcome to submit.  Student films are certainly welcomed and encouraged to submit.

A $1,000.00 cash prize is awarded to the Best Short Film. 

NYNL will program a conglomerate of the best films selected during the Seasonal Series and award the cash prize at the conclusion of the 2011 Fall Film Series.  The winner for Best Short Film will be chosen from a panel of industry members that includes; filmmakers, producers and actors. 

 

All NYNL Film Series are held at The Wild Project in New York City.  Please visit www.thewildproject.com for info about the venue.

We look forward to viewing all the great films.
