We at NYSFF are preparing for a fantastic festival of independent short filmmaking. We’ll be showcasing short films from around the world on Nov 12-18, 2022 at Manhattan’s best-loved independent cinema -- the Cinema Village .

Awards are made in each of the seven submission categories: Short Film; Documentary Short; Experimental Short; Animated Short; Sci-Fi Short; Horror Short; and Music Video.

1. All films must be under 50 minutes in length.

2). We only accept digital submissions. We accept no hardcopy submissions. Link us to your film on Vimeo or another hosting site.

3). Please send any related press materials, including electronic press kit, and photos to info@newyorkshort.com

    Great film-festival to be a part of for sure...and not just because I was selected or anything :-)

    Online is decent but not preferred yet it's what we are currently stuck with at this pandemic moment in time...

    Stay Safe...Sane...& Sanitized...

    Warmest Regards...

    Poor communication.
    They charge you to attend a club to find out if you won an award.

    This is a wonderful festival! I felt very welcomed, and NYSFF made every effort to connect us all. The workshops and panels were also very informative.
