Our mission is to recognize excellence and diversity in cinema by nurturing emerging filmmakers and helping them get recognition and contacts to break into a tough industry. We celebrate the crazy cultural mixture that is New York City, showcasing emerging filmmakers from every age, ethnic, racial, religious, cultural, political and geographic perspective. We pride ourselves on our diverse collection of films and filmmakers, allowing our audience to enjoy films they normally wouldn't think to seek out. In addition to our yearly Independent Film Festival, we host 4-6 events each year in NYC, including panel discussions, networking parties, a 48-Hour Film Challenge and other fun film-related events.
