Celebrate Diversity in Film with New York City’s WINTER FILM AWARDS! The 11th Annual Winter Film Awards International Film Festival runs February 16-25 2023, and includes awesome film screenings, free career-building professional development workshops and super-fun free parties at venues throughout NYC. We expect to accept roughly 75 amazing films from 20 countries, half directed by women and at least half by or about people of color. Final lineup to be announced January 5th.
We showcase creative fresh voices from emerging filmmakers worldwide in all genres and lengths – feature length and shorts, narrative fiction, documentary, animation, horror, web series and music videos. Our mission is to promote diversity, bridge the opportunity divide and provide a platform for under-represented artists and a variety of genres, viewpoints and approaches. We believe that only by seeing others’ stories can we understand each other and only via an open door can the underrepresented artist enter the room.
