New Media Film Festival: The Best in New Media! Honoring Stories Worth Telling

The intersection of artistry, distribution, new formats & new tech.
What Oscar Winner Nicholas Reed has to say:

The New Media Film Festival seemed like an outlier when it started in 2010, with their strange categories, web series, 3D storytelling, digital comics, now all of a sudden these phrases are the new normal. The NMFF is always looking to the future, challenging creators, the market and the audience to discover new storytelling. There are not many festivals pushing the limits - go NMFF!

This is a weekly screening series focused on independent films that go overlooked by film festivals. While we are in the interest of showing well-made films regardless of the context, and all will be seriously considered, special consideration will be given to films that utilize low budget resources and exhibit qualities of the auteur theory such as personal subject matters or unique aesthetics and techniques.

The aim is to promote a film culture of artists who want to share their work and hone their craft, but don’t necessarily subscribe to the lengthy and exclusionary film festival submission process.

A unique aspect of this series is your submissions will be reviewed quickly and, if accepted, exhibited the following month at the Secret Rose Theater in North Hollywood, CA.

The screenings will be similar to premieres with a reception preceding the films, followed be a presentation and analysis given by Anthony, the owner of Cineartistry. The films will then be shown, followed by an after party at one of the many establishments in the area, time permitting.

There are two categories: Features and Shorts. Each Tuesday, a chosen short will be screened, followed by a chosen feature.

Awards & Prizes

All chosen films will be screened on a certain Tuesday the following month at the Secret Rose theater in North Hollywood, CA.

There will be a presentation and analysis given before the film by Anthony, the owner, head writer, and curator of CineArtistry.

An InkTip prize package for 3 chosen exceptional films.

There will be additional prizes to be named later per sponsorship approval.

It offers a variety of sessions that appeal to emerging & established filmmakers and the general public, including information sessions, Q&A's, panels, introductory workshops, as well as master classes.
