NY Shorts Fest events include receptions, as well as workshops and master classes with industry experts and top filmmaking professionals sharing their practical advice to attending filmmakers. The heart of the festival will be our quality and scope of extraordinary film programming.

NY Shorts Fest feels that short form cinema and its creators should have their own premiere film festival in New York deserving similar recognition given to the feature film and its creators.
