Welcome to New York True Venture Film Festival, an event dedicated to empowering independent filmmaking.
NYTVFF is an IMDb Award Listing Qualifier and a New York-based film festival that shares the dedication and passion for bringing independent short and full feature films to the big screen. We believe that by giving the opportunity to the new ideas of intelligent and unique creators, we would give the audience the chance to appreciate their art.
The New York True Venture Film Festival screening will be held from May 24th to May 26th, where the festival will screen award-winning films.
The red carpet award ceremony and performance show will conclude on May 27th, 2023.
Please be advised that filmmakers who attend have priority in the film screening schedule. We are a screening festival and a filmmakers-supported festival. There are no free comps. Filmmakers attending will have a Q & A after their screening.
Trophies and certificates will be provided to all winners!
