The 9th New York Shorts International Film Festival will be held August 21-27, 2020. 

The festival is scheduled to proceed as planned with more films and networking events than last year.

New York Shorts International Film Festival is one of the largest showcases of short films in North America.

The festival has become a career stepping stone, establishing a tradition of discovering and promoting filmmakers who have gone on to be Academy Awards Nominees. Last year's film line-up included the Oscar-nominated short 'Animal Behaviour' directed by Alison Snowden and David Fine.

 

New York Shorts 2019 'Best of Fest' winner "The Neighbors' Window" is this years' OSCAR® WINNER for Live-Action Short Film. We congratulate director Marshall Curry and his team.
