HARD-TO-GET INFO • An event by this name may exist, but we have not been able to find even basic information about it. The listing remains available for your reference.

We accept all genres. Submissions will also be considered for additional Gen Art programming (Screening Series, Cinema Circle, Bi-Coastal Premieres) when appropriate. A short film is any film with a running time of no more than 24 minutes.


The genart Film Festival spotlights some of the most talented emerging filmmakers in North America. Offering a multi-genre slate of 14 dynamic films, seven shorts and seven features, the festival is attended by an influential audience of film lovers, press, and industry professionals. Each screening night is followed by a legendary after-party where filmmakers receive VIP treatment and have the opportunity to mix and mingle with everyone in attendance.

Our mission is to give filmmakers the best possible festival experience you can imagine. By spotlighting a select number of films on each night, we focus all eyes on your work exclusively and strive to get you and your film as much exposure as possible. After the festival we will continue to support and promote your current and future work with the national resources provided at genart.


The genart Film Festival was founded to elevate emerging filmmakers into the next stage of their career. This festival is an opportunity for you to significantly raise your profile by sharing your film with a powerful audience - gaining crucial media attention and strengthening industry relations.

Celebrating its 18th year in 2013, genart has hosted New York premieres for a vast array of emerging filmmakers who have gone on to become some of the strongest voices in independent film today. In 2012, genart showed directorial debuts from Jaime King and Ryan Eggold, as well as featured performances from actors such as Bryan Greenberg, Laura Prepon, Dreama Walker, Mickey Sumner, Toby Hemingway and more. Additionally, genart's closing night world premiere of the film, The Kitchen directed by Ishai Setton, was discovered and picked up for release from Monterey Media at the festival.

The 2012 festival also featured Sundance selections such as Kid-Thing directed by Nathan and David Zellner and the New York premiere of the film Silent Thief directed by Jennifer Clary garnered a feature in the Wall Street Journal.

For short filmmakers, the genart experience can't be beat. Each short film shares the red carpet experience and is presented exclusively before a feature. This unique opportunity allows us to highlight these filmmakers with the same concentrated focus that the features receive.

But aside from all that, The genart Film Festival is a downright good time. Countless filmmakers point out genart as one of their most exhilarating and memorable stops on the festival circuit. The non-stop action as premieres and parties roll out during the festival creates a feeling of excitement that will stay with you for years to come.
