NFFTY is one of the world's largest and most influential festivals for emerging filmmakers. Join us October 24-27!

NFFTY is overwhelmingly positive. NFFTY is a perfect test ground for what it’s like to be a filmmaker in today’s world. It’s the most positive festival I’ve ever been to in terms of encouraging creative work.
— Kevin Klauber, NFFTY alumnus & editor of the Oscar-winning Documentaries, 20 FEET FROM STARDOM and ICARUS
