At the center of Jillian’s Peak, a story loosely based on the life of creator Charzette Torrence, Jillian is an African American woman who finds herself in the throes of discovering her true sexual orientation. Thought out the series, Jillian will face life challenges, as she confronts issues of self-denial, love, family, career, and identity. When we first meet Jillian, she is engaged to Keith, a charming, charismatic, and sometimes arrogant attorney. Their wedding is the talk of the town. Her marriage to Keith would be something that was needed to succeed or her efforts to grow in the willingness to fail.

A GOP congressman-turned right wing shock jock; a rising star in the Young Republicans; a party-loyal Ohio farmer; a US Army Veteran & hardcore ‘MAGA’; and three evangelicals all recount their evolutions from Trump supporters in 2016 to adamant adversaries in 2020. The film takes a deep dive into their motives for voting, their doubts, and the epiphanies that changed their minds.

New York City Independent Film Festival is proud to screen The Cantor’s Last Cantata!

About to retire, the cantor of a small reform Jewish synagogue in Brooklyn, NY, mounts a production of the “Brooklyn Baseball Cantata,” a largely forgotten musical oddity from 1940. Composed by George Kleinsinger with lyrics by Michael Stratton, the operetta imagines a moment when Brooklynites awake from a borough-wide slumber to share a dream that their beloved Brooklyn Dodgers finally beat The New York Yankees, their arch-rivals from the Bronx, in a World Series. “The Cantor’s Last Cantata,” follows the amateur choir members as they rehearse, kibbutz, nosh Entenmanns and perform for the congregation.

New York City Independent Film Festival is proud to screen The Booth!

“The Booth” is an exploration of the history and subculture surrounding the private viewing booths hidden in the back of adult bookstores.

“The Booth” is about adult video arcades and the role alternative spaces play in shaping—and preserving—identities. Through interviews, archival media, and site visits, the documentary explores this refuge for marginalized and at-risk communities and what might happen if these spaces were to disappear.

New York City Independent Film Festival is proud to screen The Birthland!

Historically Rohingya people have a long period of persecution and at the moment Kutupalong of Cox’s Bazar District in Bangladesh is one of the largest Refugee Camp in the world full of Rohingya populaces. After the holocaust happened at the Rakhine state of Myanmar during August 2017, there is almost a million people have been forced to flee from their birth land and they entered to Bangladesh as Rohingya Refugee to save their life. Though that massive killing is known as ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ at world media it was sort of Genocide that is officially not recognized at any stage.

New York City Independent Film Festival is proud to screen Texturas De Luz Sobre Negro !

Light textures on black background is part of an audiovisual artistic research project that tries to transfer expressive and emotional concepts to the screen with moving images and, therefore, intentionally lacks formal, narrative and structural aspects.

Any resemblance to reality is purely coincidental and a chance accident in the production process.

New York City Independent Film Festival is proud to screen Tartarus!

A young man is trapped in a nightmare-scape bunker with a personal demon of desire, waiting for the Father to grant him permission to leave. But permission is unnecessary after he submits to the demon, allowing it to embrace him to destruction… and a dark, freeing rebirth. A religious allegory for the prisons we build in our minds to submit to a distant, abstract Deity, and our potential for a self-described “evil” we try and fail to suppress.

Dear Friends, You may remember I created a film about Erica Garner’s death by a NYPD chokehold. Given what’s going on in Minneapolis, and the US more broadly, I’m providing additional film footage and information on the subject of aggressive policing, police culture, and chokeholds. If you’re interested go to the Film Page below for all the updates. Additionally, if you’re interested in hosting a virtual community screening of the film to get a better understanding of policing and the subject of chokeholds please reach out. Finally, the film is seeking a distribution producer. If you, or anyone you know might be interested in getting involved, please reach out. Stay safe! https://www.facebook.com/BreatheNYPD/
Thank you NYC Indie Film Fest for having us, and congrats to all who have been selected this year. I wish I could have met you all in person!!!

I love how this film festival recognizes and awards independent films. I absolutely love independent films and believe that many of them deserve a lot more attention! During this time of quarantine, I was seeking a way to discover more independent films. I came across a website called Film Festival Flix that was my saving grace! After getting a subscription, I had access to a large variety of film festivals and the films that were featured within them. My favorite festival was IndieFest International because it featured films of all different genres that are extremely entertaining. If you’re looking for something to do during this quarantine, check this website out!
🆕🆓🎥🍿 ‘The Arrival of Mr. White Pants’ ‘A DAZZLING MOVIE. A Superiority film. The most striking and baroque images you’re ever likely to see. Heartbreaking. Emotional, poetic cinematic experience.’ 💯🍿
I just found your page and your indie film festival looks awesome! It’s nice finding like-minded organizations who are eager to embrace fresh ideas from around the world and give aspiring creators the platform to for opportunity and recognition they deserve for their unique pieces. There is a hidden beauty in the art that goes into making short, feature and independent films a reality-- a talent that not every person possesses. It’s always a shame when innovative creators go unnoticed-- film festivals such as yours always make the difference! I love to support any small film when I can and I recently watched an independent film on VOD, which was actually quite perfect for the day since it’s Halloween, called Empathy Inc. This neo-noir film centers around the world of extreme virtual reality, following the chaos that ensues as its powers fall into the hands of evil. Empathy Inc sent chills down my spine from the very beginning, and by the end I was questioning the use of technology all together-- I even contemplated taking a break from using so much of it for a minute! This film was literally unlike any indie-horror I’ve ever seen, and I’m so glad that I gave it a chance-- if you want to watch the trailer, you can find it on Amazon or YouTube, but be prepared to be totally horrified! Happy Halloween!
This is such a great film festival. I recently came across this new sci-fi indie thriller, Empathy, Inc., which I think would be a great contribution to this page. Reviewed greatly by Variety, Empathy, Inc follows a start-up for an Extreme Virtual Reality company that allows the rich to live the life of someone poor to feel empathy. Followed by a series of twists and turns, this monochromatic film left me speechless. I'd have to commend the director, Yedidya Gorsetman, for his new and refreshing approach to this genre. I'd have to recommend this film! It is available on iTunes and Amazon, feel free to let me know what you think!
I love this page! All of the films this festival features are so original and different; I have to check them out for myself. I wanted to share with you about an indie horror film I just watched called Empathy Inc. It starts off by telling the story of Joel, a recently unemployed business man who lost his job along with his credibility. Desperate to get back on his feet, he invests in a strange virtual reality start-up, that’s not as innocent as it seems. Things ger scarier and scarier as more information is discovered about this mysterious start-up. The original cinematography paired with the great acting contributed to making this a solid horror film overall. Theres actually a showing at the Film Noir Cinema tomorrow at 9pm! I loved watching the film on VOD, I’d definitely recommend making the trip to Brooklyn to see it on the big screen.
