From the desk of Darren
Festival Director & Co-Founder
NYC Filmmaker's Fest
Like yourself, I am a filmmaker, and also the proud festival
director of the
THIRD Annual New York City FilmMakers Fest. Our first two years went great, people thought we had been around a lot longer!
And, because I am a Filmmaker too, I know just how hard it is
to have your film seen by
more than a few of your close friends and family, let alone have it distributed in a way
that you might actually make money or give your film career a helping hand.
That‚€™s why I got together with a few industry players who
understand indie film and
the needs of indie filmmakers, including: Frank Zagottis, award winning writer and
Marc Baron of the NY SAG board, just to name a couple.
We all got together in order to create a new kind of festival
because we truly understand
independent filmmakers like yourself, and we all respect your bold, artistic, personal vision!.
So don‚€™t worry, we‚€™re not looking for
films with multi-million dollar budgets and
a cast full of name actors‚€¶ Instead we‚€™re looking for true independent films
with heart, soul, desire, and a love of the art of Film and Video storytelling.
And even if you don't have a current film to submit, that's OK!...
Submit a screenplay or just attend the festival in order to
network with the 100s of other
indie filmmakers and other industry folks. Not only will you enjoy yourself, but the connections
and friendships you make will last a lifetime and can continually advance your career.
So don't wait...
