For Filmmakers by Filmmakers

The NewFilmmakers Series began in 1998 and over the past twenty-one years has screened over 1000 feature and 4,000 short films. In 2000 we brought the Havana Film Festival to New York and in 2002 we started NewFilmmakers Los Angeles. Our YoungFilmmakers & AltFest Series screen monthly. Many well-known shorts and features including Blair Witch and Too Much Sleep have had their initial screenings at NewFilmmakers.
