The 8th Annual International New York Film Festival, (INYFF) will be held in June 2022 in the heart of New York City, TIMES SQUARE! The INYFF is rapidly becoming one of NYC's most exclusive, trendy festivals where all ages of filmmakers as well as celebrities and stars are in attendance! JUNE 24 AND 25.

This year will also include an online screening event with the LIVE Times Square NYC festival. Now, friends, family, cast and crew who aren't able to attend the live event can be part of the online screening festival which will also give us the opportunity to show more films as well.

NOW, screenplay award winners will receive a DISTRIBUTION AWARD! Winning a distribution award will help you raise the funding needed to produce your screenplay into a feature film. Once investors know you have a distribution deal in place it will make it easier to obtain the funding you need to fulfill your dream!

In the INYFF first time filmmakers with no-budgets to seasoned pros with name talent and multi-million dollar budgets screen together in the most eclectic film festival anywhere in NY and the world. Submit today and become part of the INYFF family.

Gold Award distribution winners have the option to accept or refuse the distribution deal. All deliverables must be met including a trailer and the film in a Prores HQ file.

The International New York Film Festival is seeking outstanding filmmakers of all ages. Innovative, creative, unique in their vision. All genre are accepted.

Unfortunately due to the importance of the film submission revenue in operating the Festival we are unable to offer fee waivers. Recognizing the funding challenges that filmmakers face we encourage you to take advantage of the EarlyEarly Bird Deadlines.

    "20 Questions" was honored to be part of this year's International New York Film Festival! The festival team was exceptional from beginning to end, putting together, not just a festival - but an artistic community celebrating each other's work. We would definitely hope to be part of the festival again!
