New York Lift-Off Film Festival

One of the most exciting features in the Lift-Off calendar, the New York Lift-Off Film Festival plays at the exciting Videology in the heart of Brooklyn.

Screening days packed with films of multiple lengths, genres, nationalities, and style, New York Lift-Off is an honest, fair and true celebration of American and International Indie Film – a pure homage to the excellence of today’s grassroots filmmaker. Winners of New York Lift-Off have the potential to receive automatic official selections at ALL proceeding Lift-Off Film Festivals, spread throughout the year and all over the world.

Through a packed out week of inspirational stimulus, professional showcasing and high-end networking – films are scored by the audience and the selection panel. Selected features have the opportunity to be considered by Lift-Off's distribution arm and linked with our sales contacts. Los Angeles Lift-Off offers opportunity on-top of opportunity, forming a vital part of the Lift-Off Global Network.

Not only is our festival a global showcase for filmmakers looking to take that next step, we provide a free service where we take your work to the major film markets AFM, Cannes, EFM etc... All with the aim of getting your work acquired by distributors.
