New York City is the capital of the world, a place where the world converges. And we would like to celebrate international and independent films. We have a vision that film as a medium can make a positive impact in the world and the belief that New York City and its people is the best place to make this happen. It can be as simple as sharing a laughter or a tear in a short film or making a direct impact on lives across the world in a documentary. IFFM believes in filmmakers and will give support in showcasing their works in NY, by giving them the full NY theatrical experience! All invaluable in fostering film careers in this age of hybrid and self distribution. It starts by helping filmmakers find their audience in NY by giving them opportunities to promote their film. And during the film festival, filmmakers will also get an opportunity to get a share of the ticket sales of their own screening!
IFFM will also be a platform for different causes and social action through the films and events. Enjoy the best of what New York has to offer with our IFFM events which includes: Industry Networking Parties, personalized treatment of filmmakers and their films, opportunity for discussion, Red Carpet, Media Events and Seminars all in the greatest city in the world.
