NYC Film Festival Returns for 8th Year

The 8th Annual New York City Independent Film Festival (NYCIndieFF) is just around the corner, set to take place May 1-7, 2017, in the heart of bustling New York City. The festival includes screenings of over 250 films and includes additional events such as panels on crowdfunding for filmmakers and networking events.

In its 8th year, the festival will be adding unique experiences such as the Virtual Reality Experience, which will take place on Saturday , May 6th. This experience, curated through a partnership with REVIRE ImmersiveWorks and Pretend Labs, will showcase various interactive cinematic works, using technology such ad 3D scans and 360 Video to give attendees a unique, immersive experience.

Going beyond the many films and features that the event will highlight, NYCIndieFF seeks to nurture a creative, open experience for everyone in attendance. This year the event will feature the NYCIndieFF Voices Exhibit Project, an endeavor meant to allow participants to share their voices and thoughts on our world today. Those interested are welcomed to send short videos with their thought pieces, which will be used by NYCIndieFF Executive Director Dennis Cieri to create a cohesive piece for the festival. Those interested can contact exhibit@nycindieff.com to learn more.

The festival is known for bringing together short-films, music videos, animated works and more into one localized event. Whether you’re a filmmaker yourself, a writer, and actor, or just a fan, you can find what you’re looking for throughout this weeklong festival.
