The NYC Italian American Short Film Festival (NYCIASFF) will be held May 6-7, 2016, in Midtown, New York City, NY, USA as part of a series of festivals taking place from April 27 to May 8, 2016.

The NYC Italian American Short Film Festival (NYCIASFF) showcases short films of all genres made by Italian American storytellers and artists. The festival aims to explore, examine, and celebrate the identity and heritage of this unique chunk in the melting pot that is the United States.

We all have passion. Filmmakers are luck because they are in a position to share that passion with others and use it to change the world for the better. Do you have a short film that you are passionate about? We would like to see it.

Join us for the 1st Annual NYC Italian American Short Film Festival and become part of a new tradition!

Please be sure to review ALL submission guidelines before you mail the entry. We have limited time and resources to correct application mistakes. Please try and be as accurate as possible. We will contact you by e-mail if there are any problems, so please be sure to watch for e-mails from NYCIASFF@cierimedia.com.

We vastly prefer online submissions either a private/password protected vimeo/YouTube link. If you are submitting with DVD it MUST be formatted as NTSC Region 0 or 1. If your film is selected we will provide full technical specifications but an .mov, mp4 or .mpg works great. All films will be played from a hard drive. Please note, if accepted, we MUST receive the exhibition media AT LEAST SIX (6) WEEKS before the festival.

If your submission is selected, you will be notified by e-mail in the end of March. Accepted filmmakers will be given one free admission pass to the festival. (We cannot help with any transportation, food or lodging costs.) If you are coming to the festival and want to be a part of a panel during the festivities we need to know by April 15, 2016 so we can make arrangements regarding the number and size of panels, etc.
