Our first film festival took place in 2019 under "The Network", but we didn't feel like that encompassed the scope of our traveling film festival. We relaunched in 2023 as The Nomadic International Film Festival.

Reviews from 2019:

“The Network film festival was the best festival I’ve ever attended! The location ideal, the staff organized and courteous, and the theatre comfortable with excellent sound. The Q and A’s afterwards were well moderated and provided expert feedback. The whole experience was an A+!”
-Susan Jane McDonald

The Network Film Festival was an exciting opportunity for burgeoning filmmakers from all walks of life to showcase their talents. Short and full length films were on offer in a variety of genres. I suspect that many of these filmmakers will be making their mark in the industry for many years to come. I cannot wait to see what this film festival produces in the future!
- Joseph P. Actor

I had the pleasure of attending the Network NY Festival a few years back and was very impressed with the selection of films and the talent of the casts and crews. There are many film festivals out there and this one is one of the best!
