We all love movies or we wouldn't be here. Almost every weekend there's a different festival celebrating all different kinds of film from all different people. Below are the festivals I've found happening in the next few months around New York City. Feel free to comment if I've missed any or if you've attended any. Enjoy!
Columbia University Film Festival May 3-9
The Columbia University Film Festival is the annual premiere of thesis short films, feature screenplays and teleplays created by graduate MFA students from Columbia University School of the Arts Film Program.
New York Polish Film Festival May 8-12
The New York Polish Film Festival was founded nine years ago by Festival Director Hanna Kosińska Hartowicz, in association with FILMART Productions. The Festival aims to foster a community that encourages humanitarian and personal themes to be illuminated through the diverse yet unifying medium of artistic expression. Every year the Festival invites Poland's talented directors, actors and young filmmakers to present their work in New York City and to meet and engage in discussions about their respective crafts with the audience.
Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival (BHFF) May 9-12
Although Bosnia and Herzegovina, a country in Southeastern Europe slightly smaller than West Virginia, generates only several feature films per year, its filmmakers have gained worldwide recognition, producing award-winning movies on very low budgets. The Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival (BHFF) is an annual event, featuring contemporary Bosnian-Herzegovinian cinematography and films with Bosnia and Herzegovina as their theme. Since its founding in 2003, the BHFF has gained a reputation as an important showcase that provides a platform for the exposure of up-and-coming and internationally-renowned filmmakers, thus contributing to a greater understanding of this country, its diverse culture and complex history.
