During the five-day festival, films will be screened in the Producers Club, located in the heart of Manhattan’s theater district. It makes a wonderful home for the international cinematic tradition of the festival, with its spacious theaters, intimate lounge, urban décor and artistic history.

This year, plans are to show well over 100 films. The 5th New York City Independent Film Festival will continue to uphold the tradition of promoting new and emerging voices in film, spoken word, music, and art. "Last year was by far the biggest and the best. And this year is going to be bigger," said Dennis Cieri Executive Director and Founder. "Also, a new Art Film section will be added. To submit to the new Art Section, filmmaker can use the super short film category." Beside movies, multiple panel discussions will be held on issues pertinent to today’s filmmaker and viewing audience. The festivities will conclude with the presentation of the Fan Awards and Best of Festival Awards, which include awards in 9 categories.
