Support the World’s Best Emerging Filmmakers through #giveNFFTY

What better way to look ahead to our 11th Annual NFFTY, taking place in 2017, than to set our sights high? We have a fundraising goal of $25,000 to go directly into the cost of putting on the best film festival for emerging filmmakers in the world.

We can’t do it without your support!




Why donate to NFFTY? Because 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, continued educational opportunities like world-class lectures and new technology demonstrations, and year-round programming like Film of the Week and Best of NFFTY Screenings. Additionally, NFFTY Creative has also provided funding and mentorship around dozens of projects for NFFTY Alumni filmmakers in connection with worldwide brands.

As a non-profit, we rely on many sources of revenue – from sponsorships, ticket sales, submission fees, grants and individual donationsPlease consider making a tax deductible gift to NFFTY today.
