Audience Choice Awards are granted quarterly

NewFilmmakers NY is New York's longest running year round Film Festival.

Events are held weekly at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue New York, NY

NewFilmmakers screens roughly 700 short and feature length projects throughout the year grouped into special interest nights. Some of our ongoing programs include NewLatino, Middle East, Christian Sex, Upcoming Women, Experimental, and Crime & Punishment. NewFilmmakers is an international series with an eye towards films shot in the tri-state (NY - NJ - PA) and surrounding areas.

Throughout it's 18 year run NewFilmmakers has provided a platform for first time and veteran filmmakers. This doesn't need to be your first film to submit to NewFilmmakers. Some of the films we have had the pleasure of screening include Indie Spirit Award winner "Too Much Sleep," "The Blair Witch Project," and Academy Award winner "Mr. Hublot".

    Great Venue, Great Theatre, Great people. I just wish they had more advertising outside the building to draw in a crowd.

    NewFilmmakers NY was great! The festival organizers and staff are super-nice, the theater is huge, and the festival gives a filmmaker lots of opportunities to market one's work. Highly recommended!

  • This is a great film festival that screens at the famous Anthology Film Archives in New York City. The atmosphere is relaxed, the screenings are great and Barney and Bill do a wonderful job programming a top notch selection of films. I definitely encourage filmmakers to submit their films to this film festival.

    Wonderful festival. Barney and Bill did an amazing job at programming and putting the event together. We had a Q & A after the screening and the audience were very involved. Did I mention it's at Anthology Film Archives. If you are a filmmaker you should definitely submit to the festival!

  • Great, small venue with an intent to try and get networking going. It was a very special day to get one of my actor's families and watch my first feature. NewFilmmakers were incredibly inviting and cordial.
