The inaugural New York International Short Film Festival, NY Shorts Fest was held at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York City, May 29 - 31, 2012.
NY Shorts Fest provides a showcase for the best short-form cinema and its creators in the world.
Created by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences accredited Los Angeles International Short Film Festival, LA Shorts Fest.
We feel that short form cinema and its creators should have their own premier film festival in New York deserving similar recognition given to the feature film and its creators. The heart of the festival will be our quality and scope of extraordinary film programming.
In order to showcase the best short films and its filmmakers from around the world, we created the New York International Short Film Festival.
