MISSION & OBJECTIVE

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Following the success of the inaugural New York Dénouement Film Festival, NYDEF is launching the next stage in its short film festival, NYDEF is now New York Premiere.

New York Premiere (NYP) is a new type of international short film festival, in which we integrate traditional with new. NYP is designed to make the city of New York, your audience and your television your venue.

The films selected will be featured on a 9 week broadcast on not for profit public access television locally in New York City. In the broadcast we will interview the filmmakers on their works, creativity, concepts and air their original short film to a potential audience of 8 million people.

Following the air dates, the viewers will vote online for their favorite films and select the winner.

The aim of this festival is to encourage, support, endorse and highlight the determination, passion, ambition and creativity of emerging filmmakers from around the world.

Allowing the audience to vote on the winner, brings a new level of audience engagement and illustrates to the filmmakers, the public reception of their works.

Created by producers, and filmmakers, this competition is catered to highlight and award noteworthy films in independent cinema.

This is an International Festival and is open to all languages. There are no completion date requirements for submission and multiple entries are allowed.
