Filmmaker Testimonials

What filmmakers have said. 
"A fantastic experience all around. I'd highly recommend submitting to NYShorts!"  
Jack Kenny
The Birds Sing Too Loud

"We loved premiering at NY Shorts! Between the helpful and responsive staff, and the fantastic venue, we had a wonderful time. Plus - the staff even stepped up and helped orchestrate a proposal! Is there anything they can't do?"
Corrie Legge
Self Portrait  

"I just want to thank you, the staff, and the organizers of the New York Shorts International Film Festival. It was an honor to be accepted and to have the opportunity to meet and chat with other filmmakers. It was exciting to screen my film at Anthology Film Archives - such a well respected institution in the film world - and to such a large audience. It was all very well organized and easy for my guests to navigate the on-line ticket sales. I only wish I had been free to see more of the films. Thanks for a very memorable experience."

"Festival was so fun and I met some awesome people. Great event!" 
LaReina Phelan

"Wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the festival. I attended all but one of the programs this year and made some new filmmaker friends.  And it was great to see my work up on the big screen in a very strong and interesting field of films. It was a great networking opportunity, and 

I am very sad that the Sunshine is closing its doors as a theater! The festival was a good concluding celebration of this beloved indie venue.  Many thanks for the giving my film, such a fine screening event!

David Bemis

Uncle Silas 

Thank you so much for programming my film (Maddie) at NY Shorts. It meant so much to have the opportunity to experience and share my film on the big screen here in NYC.

I really enjoyed attending the other film screenings, and connecting with so many of the other filmmakers. It was really encouraging to meet other filmmakers that have had similar experiences. I can definitely see myself collaborating with some of the people I met last week at the festival.

"I just wanted to thank you again for featuring Merhaba as part of the NY Shorts. We had a wonderful time last night, and it was so rewarding to see the film up on the big screen. My composer was in the audience and was particularly thrilled about the sound quality of the theatre. All around a great experience for us."

Lauren Brady

"Thanks to everyone involved in the NY Shorts. I was thrilled to be able to finally screen the film for my cast and crew alongside a packed theater. It also happened to be one of my favorite theaters in NYC. It was really a great time!"

Kevin Haus

"Thank you so much for your appreciation of my film "Subconscious Password".  It was wonderful to hear of the news, so unexpectedly, of your Grand Prize for my film.  And of course, for Best Animated Film as well.  I find that some people get my film, and some don't.  You guys clearly got it.  I'm honoured and humbled.  Thanks again, so much.
