  • Seeking film-related events in NYC

    I'm planning a long weekend in New York sometime in the coming months and would like to schedule it around some film-related event -- a festival, writer's convention, maybe even a pitch-fest. Any suggestions?

    The big daddy is the Tribeca Film Festival (April 25-May 7).

    The most respected festival is the New York Film Festival (late September/early October).

    I've also heard good things about the NY International Latin Film Festival (late July).

    I'm a volunteer for the GenArt Film Festival (April 5-11). I'm a fan of the format of the festival - 7 shorts & 7 features over 7 days. A $20 ticket gets you into that night's short/feature combo and invited to an after party with the filmmakers, and more importantly, with an open bar. It's actually a pretty tough festival to get into as a filmmaker, because there are only 14 slots and over 1,000 submissions.
