New York City International Film Festival has a well-earned reputation, nationally and internationally, as one of the most respected events of the film festival year. The organization is committed to bringing the best of the world’s cinematography to New York City and to provide a platform for established and upcoming talented domestic and international filmmakers to showcase their work. New York City International Film Festival is unlike any other film festivals; NCIFF reveals “We are not a film festival of Film festivals”, They demand a NY Premiere to show a film at their festival, which makes them more serious, exclusive and puts them in another level of competition.
