For the Second time, the New York City International Film Festival (NCIFF) will be held right here in Times Square. The NYCIFF assists emerging international filmmakers to expand the audience for their works, broadens the access for the general public to experience independent film, promotes New York City as a major filmmaking center and recognizes Times Square as the crossroads of the worlds. Starting next Thursday, August 18th through August 25th the NCIFF will showcase international feature-length and short premiere film screenings for 300 films from 48 countries including 75 World premiers, 20 North America premiers, 7 USA Premiers, and 16 New York Premiers from independent feature, documentary, short narrative and animated emerging filmmakers from around the globe.
Throughout the festival videos will be shown from the PSA campaign "Reel Jobs. Reel Proud. Reel New Yorkers." The campaign created by the NYC Mayor's Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting features New Yorkers who make their living working behind the scenes in film and television production and aims to educate residents about the importance of the industry.
