Benefitting from a year-long rolling deadline, NYCDSFF celebrates short-form artistry in a variety of exciting categories, including dramatic, comedic, documentary, Latino, animated, LGBT, and New York City-made films. There's something for everyone at NYCDSFF, and an exceptional setting in which to enjoy it.
In addition to its satisfying buffet of shorts, NYCDSFF offers lavish opening and closing night receptions, filmmaker Q&As with enthusiastic audiences, and increased industry visibility in one of the world's most robust entertainment capitals. Informal meet-and-greet wine receptions allow gifted artists to mix and mingle with industry professionals who possess keen eyes for sharp talent. The result is a festival that truly honors the short-form artist and helps position him or her for other exciting opportunities behind the camera.
MISSION AND OBJECTIVE
NYCDSFF is a program of Duo Multicultural Arts Center, a non-profit designed to create, promote, and celebrate multicultural arts through theater, music, dance, art, and film.
MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
NYCDSFF screenings unfold in a charming and intimate turn-of-the-century theater in New York City's trendy East Village, offering heavy doses of character, history, and comfort.
Last year's big screen offerings included stories about internet use and brain development, a friendship rocked by Huntington's Disease, robots that have grown bored with their workplace, and a gay couple that turns the tables on their homophobic attackers. In short, NYCDSFF is as diverse and as exciting as its remarkable host city. Submit your film today, and visit NYC this April for a fully immersive and rewarding festival experience!
