2019 Winter Film Awards International Film Festival

14-Feb-2019- 23-Feb-2019. New York, United States

Winter Film Awards is New York City -- showcasing the eclectic diversity and excitement of the independent arts world. The Fest celebrates the outstanding work of emerging filmmakers in all genres from around the world, with an emphasis on highlighting underrepresented artists. Works of all lengths and genres are considered for Festival screening, including narrative Fiction, Documentary, Web Series, Music Videos, Animation and Horror.

Each year, Winter Film Awards selects 80-90 independent films of all genres. Roughly half of selections are made by women; roughly half are made by people of color. All selected films are screened at Cinema Village, New York City's best independent cinema.

Emerging filmmakers with low budgets and no connections are so often ignored in favor of the standard big budget generic action films. Exciting low-budget films are created all over the world; we need the opportunity to see them!

The 8th Annual Winter Film Awards International Film Festival runs February 14-23 2019, including awesome film screenings, cool discussion panels, useful professional development workshops and super-fun parties at venues throughout NYC. The event concludes on February 23rd with a glittering awards ceremony and red carpet gala at one of NYC’s premier nightclubs. We award over $100,000 in cash, prizes and distribution opportunities!

Winter Film Awards is an all-volunteer women and minority-run 501(c)3 organization founded in 2011. We believe everyone deserves a fair shot at getting their voice heard and we have a rigorous blind judging process to ensure a bias-free review. Winter Film Awards is proudly a Best Reviewed Festival on FilmFreeway.
