New York City Independent Film Festival has been planning exciting new events this year. One of the recently released news is that they are holding the Music Video Night and Festival Party along with the Closing Party in the trendy lounge Rosebud. They are part of the New York’s urban resort The Out NYC located in Hells Kitchen. The Out is also the official hotel of the film festival.
Music Video Screening Night and Festival Party planned for Saturday, October 19th is going to be a night to remember. All the selected music videos will be screened that evening followed by the after party where all the filmmakers and film lovers can enjoy what the independent community has to offer. The closing party will be on Sunday, October 20th where the Fan Awards will be given to all the winning filmmakers. It is going to be a night of drinks, toasts and awards. The filmmakers including their cast and crew are flying in from all around the world to attend their screenings and the events.
This year, the festival will take place for a week, starting Monday, October 14th. There will be a "Mark of Distinction" section for films and the tickets are available on the website. One of the Mark of Distinction movies ‘Scatter Joy’ is about the inspiring story of legally blind cartoonist Brent Harpur. A Melbourne based artist who has always wanted to visit New York since he was an art student 25 years ago, will be finally fulfilling his wish for the first time to attend his screening. With so many heroes like Keith Haring, Andy Warhol and Patti Smith, he is very excited to visit New York City. Brent also has a special treat lined up for the audience who are watching his film. He will be cartooning them for free as a thank you for watching. The film festival is very excited to host this talented artist.
The tickets for the official selections of the film festival are already on the sale. The opening party on October 18th at the Producers Club will kick off the festivities with music, drinks, and more. The first set of screenings of the official selections will start that evening and go on until the closing party on October 20th.
