    A great time was had at NYNL. They provided what many of us - especially us newcomers to the scene - so eagerly seek: validation. Communication was spot-on, and it was obvious they wanted to make us feel special, which we appreciated as the greatest hospitality of all. You might think that what I'm writing is fluff, but they really do a great job. The Q&A in particular stuck out to me. The audience was interested, and the questions directed to those of us onstage by Jennifer were both smart as well as stimulating. Many thanks to Robert and Tom for their hard work in making this festival such a delight. See you all at the next one!

    Very glad to be selected at this festival ! I could not be present at the screening because of the distance (living in France), but the contact with the organizers was great ! And as I saw on the pics of the event, the ambience must have been big-time ! Thanks again !

    NYNL is a great film series that screens diverse, high-quality lineups of films. The wide array of genres and the abundance of talent on display here make for an extremely interesting and fulfilling cinematic experience. The programmers are very passionate in their support of the short film format and the artists who create these films. The communication is very prompt and helpful as well. Highly recommended.
