NFFTY 2017 Works In Progress

PResented by relativity school


NFFTY is excited to announce the 3rd annual Works in Progress Event presented by Relativity School! Taking place during the 11th annual NFFTY weekend, this event is a wonderful opportunity to have your unfinished work watched, reviewed, and critiqued by a diverse panel of industry professionals.  Selected filmmakers will receive a filmmaker badge for NFFTY 2017, receiving full access to all festival events.

Do you have a rough cut of a film that needs to be re-worked? A fine cut that needs finessing? Screen your project in front of a knowledgeable panel and audience and get the feedback you need to finalize your best work!

The Works In Progress event will screen unfinished films from filmmakers 24-and-under.

This exciting opportunity to present unfinished works in an intimate, collaborative environment is open to all filmmakers; both those with AND without a film screening in the regular festival lineup are welcome to submit.

The event will take place at 2:30 PM on Friday, April 28th at the Uptown Cinema.
