The 5th Annual NYC Independent Film Festival is accepting early bird submissions now through December 31, 2013. The 4th Annual NYC Film Festival held October 18 – 20, 2013 began on Friday, October 18th with the Opening Night Gala. Over 200 people attended and we all had a great time. Press representatives in attendance enjoyed an evening of fun and entertainment, and the opportunity to mingle over drinks with the participating filmmakers, actors, and producers. During the entire weekend, films were screened at four screening rooms in the Producers Club located in historic Times Square. The festivities include the showing of films in the following categories; Feature-Length, Documentaries, Shorts, Super-Shorts, and Music Videos. Multiple panel discussions were held on issues pertinent to today’s filmmaker and viewing audience. The festivities concluded with the presentation of the Fan Awards on the evening of Sunday, October 20st, 2013.

This year there were 127 films, including 16 music videos, screened in the four screening rooms with over a fifteen hundred people in attendance. The fifth annual film festival will continue to uphold the tradition of promoting new and emerging voices in film, spoken word, music, and art. Dennis Cieri the Executive Director of the festival said about the festival, 'The festival was fun, the movies were great and the people were wonderful!'

The venue for the festival is The Producers’ Club, which is in the heart of Manhattan’s theater district, and has been hosting great shows, and world renowned artists and celebrities since 1993. The Producers’ Club, host of the New York Hell’s Kitchen Film Festival, makes a wonderful home for the international cinematic tradition of The NYC Independent Film Fest, with its spacious theaters, intimate lounge, urban décor and artistic history.
