The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival was founded in 1993 by entertainment impresario Stuart Alson and showcases independent films in real theatres in New York City and LA.
Passionate about exposing the films and documentaries of emerging filmmakers from all over the globe, NYIIFVF is a unique platform for emerging and established filmmakers to network and screen their work in the hope of getting exposure and a distribution deal.
Past festivals have included the work of Calista Flockhart, Cameron Diaz, Eva Herzigova, Guy Pearce, George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Rod Steiger, Sean Lennon, Tippi Hedren, Willem Dafoe and Vin Diesel. Indie guru Abel Ferrara famously quoted in MovieMaker, "This festival is the real deal: Everybody else just talks about doing it, these guys just do it!”
Men’s Group premiered in New York
After a string of international film festival screenings, and a successful local release where it won Best Film, Best Script and Best Actor at the Inside Film Awards (Australia), Men’s Group will hold its New York premiere on 30th January, 2012. Producer John L. Simpson will travel from Sydney to present the event.
Men’s Group explores the very essence of masculinity. Seven men from very different backgrounds meet each week in the privacy of a suburban home to laugh, cry and have it out in an attempt to come to terms with the issues in their lives. The film was made in response to men’s depression, and the great silence that surrounds it.
“We had noticed many men were in crisis,” says John L. Simpson of the films conception. “They just felt they had nowhere to turn. We wanted to help.”
Following the international film festival circuit, and theatrical release in Australia, Men’s Group toured to regional and remote areas of Australia to screen to men’s crisis groups, and help to facilitate open communication between men in communities where depression was largely unreported.
Men’s Group will screen on Monday 30th January 2012 at 7.30pm at Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue, New York, NY 10003.
Tickets are renumerated by a 'pay as you feel' system, whereby audience members simply contribute an admission fee after having seen the film, based on its perceived value. There is no obligation to pay.
Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with the Producer and Co-Writer of Men’s Group John L Simpson. The Australian Consulate-General will support the event.
