Support the world’s best emerging directors by donating to NFFTY



At NFFTY, we champion the next generation of filmmakers, providing them with a world class platform to showcase their work, network and learn about the industry. We support filmmakers through our annual festival and through continued educational opportunities and year-round programming like Film of the Week and Best of NFFTY Screenings.  As a non-profit, we rely on many sources of revenue – from sponsorships, ticket sales, submission fees, grants and individual donations. Please consider a gift today.

For nine years we have worked with over 2,000 filmmakers from over 40 countries.  Your donation helps us to cover critical costs in putting together a festival, as well as support filmmaker outreach, travel and education. Make your donation here.


Thank you for giving to NFFTY!
