The New York City Independent Film Festival’s mission is to provide a showcase for independent filmmakers from NYC and around the world to the NYC public and entertainment industry. The weeklong celebration screens the best indie films and gives filmmakers the opportunity for potential distribution and fundraising, all while providing a space to network with press and supporters. The Festival's vision is to stay focused on low budget films and emerging yet overlooked filmmakers, to create the largest gathering worldwide of true indie filmmakers.
The 10th Annual NYC Independent Film Festival provides a showcase for indie filmmakers from NYC and around the world to the NYC public & entertainment industry.
