NY SHORT BUZZ is a screening series hosted by HollyHood Productions, Inc. made up of the hottest New York-themed short films in the country. We hope to engage and inspire diverse communities in the Big Apple by showing short films in parks, community youth centers, and college campuses. By bringing the short films of established and emerging artists to areas of the city that aren’t normally exposed to them, we aspire to galvanize our audiences into telling and sharing their own personal and gripping stories. Another of our goals is to nurture a vivacious New York independent filmmaking community not only by exhibiting the work of these filmmakers, but also by providing opportunities for filmmakers to meet and connect with their audience. HollyHood Productions N.Y. Short Buzz is helping to keep this essential genre of filmmaking alive and flourishing in New York City.
