Be a part of the NYC Independent Film Festival. The Fifth Annual NYC Independent Film Festival celebrates the art of filmmaking. Whether made by a professional filmmaker or a student with a camera, the event encourages the promotion of new and emerging voices in film, spoken word, music, and art.
The festival has reviewed well over a thousand films and, with each year, more and more people are submitting. The hope is to get into the festival where the artist's film will be shown to hundreds upon hundreds of people eagerly waiting to see what the talented independent creators have to offer.
Welcoming all categories of films including documentaries, features, shorts, animation, and music videos, the festival is spread across five days, October 15th to the 19th, 2014. To submit a film, please click here.
Located in the heart of the Times Square, and accepting films from all around the world, the festival has a large selection of Indie Films and there is definitely something for everyone. Anyone who walks into the NYC Independent Film Festival is immediately surrounded by people who appreciate the art of filmmaking. Aware of the process it takes to properly produce a film, these are people who have written, directed, edited, and even starred in their own productions. All dressed up with their family, friends, and loved ones, they sit together waiting to see their film up on the screen. A round of applause follows each film, every other person commenting on the film they have just watched, some even leaving with a few more bits of knowledge that they can apply to their own work next time. There’s a real sense of community, even though the filmmakers are from all around the world. There’s something about the craft that just brings people together.
There are people (tons of people) whose passion burns as bright on the screen as any Hollywood CGI effects. They might not cast high-profile actors or actresses, but they will be able to explore new dazzling talent, techniques and ideas.
The NYC Independent Film Festival may only just be just a half-decade old, but the impact it has on the “small” filmmaking community is huge. This is the perfect outlet for those who want to showcase their talents and possibly even use this as a stepping-stone to go to even greater heights. The NYC Independent Film Festival is proud to showcase such talents and is all about supporting those who have the talent and vision to be the next great filmmakers of future generations.
