New York International Short Film Festival | Call for Entries

If you can make it here you can make it anywhere!

The New York International Short Film Festival (NY Shorts Fest) showcases the finest short-form cinema from around the world to enthusiastic audiences in the vibrant filmmaking enclave of New York City.

NY Shorts Fest offers short-form filmmakers an ideal platform to screen their film and gain recognition in the heart of New York City. NY Shorts Fest premiered Ricky Gervais ‘Derek” in 2012, which became a popular British television show written, directed and starring Ricky Gervais. The series is now available on Netflix.

NY Shorts Fest events include receptions, as well as workshops and master classes with industry experts and top filmmaking professionals sharing their practical advice to attending filmmakers. The heart of the festival will be our quality and scope of extraordinary film programming.

NY Shorts Fest feels that short form cinema and its creators should have their own premiere film festival in New York deserving similar recognition given to the feature film and its creators.
