Support Young Artists - Support NFFTY

NFFTY seeks to support the best young filmmakers from around the world through a first class festival, educational offerings, networking and year-round programs. In advance of our 11th festival, we are trying to raise $25,000 to support young artists and filmmakers.

We can’t do it without your support!

Additionally, NFFTY Creative has also provided funding and mentorship around dozens of projects for NFFTY Alumni filmmakers in connection with worldwide brands.
