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

Live Events were held weekly at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue New York, NY before shutdown.

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 twenty-five 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 screened include Indie Spirit Award winner "Too Much Sleep," "The Blair Witch Project," and Academy Award winner "Mr. Hublot".
