    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Best Shorts Competition

    Celebrating Short Films, Television and New Media worldwide. Our mission is to support filmmakers!

    The Best Shorts Competition is unique in the industry. Attracting both powerhouse companies as well as talented new filmmakers it is an exceptional, truly international awards competition, not a traditional film festival – which allows filmmakers from around the world to enter their films in this prestigious competition. Our talented Best Shorts award winners have gone on to win Oscar, Emmy, Telly and other awards.

    Currently in its 5th year, the Best Shorts is an avant-garde worldwide competition that strives to give talented directors, producers, actors, new media creators and members of the creative teams a unique venue for their work and the positive exposure they deserve. It discovers and honors the achievements of filmmakers who produce high quality shorts and new media.

    Best Shorts promotes award winners through press releases to over 43,000 filmmakers, industry contacts and global media / distribution outlets. We are currently developing a filmmaker representative program to assist with the distribution of award winning films and a joint venture with The GRID, a worldwide network for mobile devices – both coming in 2015.

    The popularity of the Short Film genre increases every year. Options for festival directors have grown by leaps and bounds as more and more short films are created by talented filmmakers. Every film deserves the chance to be seen and with the main goal of traditional film festivals to bring entertainment to local audiences…this can make the filmmaker of secondary importance. At Best Shorts Competition, every film entered is judged on its own merits by our panels of Emmy, Telly and Communicator award nominees and winners.

    Thanks to each year's success, New York City Independent Film Festival is growing. We will be screening more films and offering more panels, classes, seminars and discussion groups. As well as more opportunities for the filmmakers, fans and to mingle and network.

    We will screen narratives, documentaries, short films, super shorts, animation shorts and music videos. We are looking for documentaries where the film-maker had a passion which he/she put into the film. No matter the subject, if the work has merit and the filming is well done; be it a full-length feature, a short or a super short - we are interested in viewing it. We are looking for all genres of narratives from comedy to drama and from thrillers to love stories.
