Get ready film fanatics! The New York City International Film Festival will be back next month! Running from Monday, March 5th to Friday, March 9th, you will have the chance to see 32 different films screened in three prominent film locations around Manhattan. Between the 19 short and animated films and the 13 feature length films, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
Now in it’s ninth year, the NYCIFF kicks off March 5th with a red carpet gala followed by a screening of the selected feature, The Girl Who Invented Kissing. The film will be followed by a Q&A with the stars and filmmakers for all those in attendance. Another exciting film that will be featured on the first night will be the world premiere of Wasted Talent, presented by actor and director Steve Stanulis.
While I can’t reveal too much about the screening schedule, the week of showings will end with a VIP reception and a special screening of Keely Shaye Smith and Pierce Brosnan’s Poisoning Paradisefollowed by a Q&A with the creators. There will also be an awards reception to honor a number of the attendees. Two of the major awards given Friday evening will be the Rising Star Award, given to Natali Yura, and the Philanthropic Award for Arts, Culture & Film, given to Jean Shafiroff.
Ticket sales from the NYCIFF will benefit the New York International Film Festival’s Foundation for the Arts, established to provide scholarships and opportunities to aspiring filmmakers, directors and performers around the world.
