    Wonderful experience! Screening at the historic Cinema Village and great company. I only wish I had realized that there would be some seats left or I would've filled them. Otherwise, a great experience!

  • A great experience and fantastic to see our short, A Strange Bird, up on the big screen in a classic Indie theater in the Village. I met lots of filmmakers at the kick-off party and again at the closing ceremonies. The festival engenders a nice feeling of community. Very good projection and sound quality at this venue. Good communication and well organized. Thanks to all at NYFF!!!
