Welcome to New York True Venture Film Festival, an event dedicated to empowering independent filmmaking.

NYTVFF is a New York based film festival that shares the dedication and passion of bringing to the big screen independent short and full feature films. We believe that by giving the opportunity to the new ideas of intelligent and unique creators, we would give the audience the chance to appreciate their art.

The New York True Venture Film Festival screening will be held on September 5th at the Kaufman Astoria Studios where the festival will screen award winning films.

The red carpet award presentation ceremony and performance show will conclude on September 6th, at the HELEN MILLS THEATER.

Please be advised, filmmakers that attend have the first priority in the film screening schedule. We are a screening festival and a filmmakers supported festival. There are no free comps. Filmmakers attending will have a Q & A after their screening.
