5th Annual New York City Independent Film Festival Now Taking Submissions

The fifth Annual New York City Independent Film Festival is now taking submissions on FilmFestivalLife.com. As a special holiday gift, discounted early bird submissions are now being accepted through December 31, 2013. During the entire festival, films will be screened in five screening rooms in the Producers Club located in historic Times Square. The festivities include the showing of films in the following categories: Feature-Length, Documentaries, Shorts, Super-Shorts, and Music Videos. Multiple panel discussions will be held on issues pertinent to today's filmmaker and viewing audience. The festivities will conclude with the presentation of the Fan Awards and Best of Festival Awards on the evening of Sunday, October 19th, 2014.

This year, plans are to show well over 100 films, including music videos and screening in the five screening rooms with well over two thousand people anticipated in attendance. The fifth annual film festival will continue to uphold the tradition of promoting new and emerging voices in film, spoken word, music, and art. "This year was by far the biggest and the best. And next year is going to be bigger," said Dennis Cieri Executive Director and Founder. "Also a big thanks to the festival's sponsors, Doritos and Mishcon de Reya, New York LLC. Both were very supportive and great sponsors." Dennis went on to say, 'Also a new Art Film section will be added. Details will follow as they are fleshed out."

The venue for the festival is The Producers' Club, which is in the heart of Manhattan's theater district, and has been hosting great shows, and world-renowned artists and celebrities since 1993. The Producers' Club makes a wonderful home for the international cinematic tradition of The NYC Independent Film Fest, with its spacious theaters, intimate lounge, urban décor and artistic history.
