movies4movies is an annual film festival committed to providing opportunities for filmmakers to show their work and to supporting independent film by providing grants to filmmakers.

This three days festival will feature programming that includes feature films, short films, and documentaries as well as networking opportunities and educational workshops. Our first instalment in February 2017 was very successful with over 500 audience members attending over the course of the 2 days. For our next festival, we want to be even bigger and will introduce night-time outdoor screenings!

We accept entries from around the world as well as domestically. We also love to showcase films local to NYC, New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester and Putnam counties their own block of programming.

  • Great location, intimate setting, caring staff, good following, lots of time for Q&A and a quality selection of films made this a wonderful experience. Didn't feel like a "scene". Just people coming together who appreciate good cinema.
