We are very excited about our third year entries and our new screening location, said festival director Amos White V. As in years previous, THE ARTISTS FORUM FESTIVAL OF THE MOVING IMAGE will present a selection of original films from extraordinary filmmakers, including several premieres.

THE ARTISTS FORUM FESTIVAL OF THE MOVING IMAGE is a competitive program open worldwide to filmmakers of all levels seeking to gain exposure in New York's international market. Each year, the festival highlights a wide variety of categories, such as: narrative, experimental, sci-fi, dark themes, comedy/musical, and music video. This year, the festival will also feature a special themed category: Women's Empowerment.

THE ARTISTS FORUM established its FESTIVAL OF THE MOVING IMAGE to provide an intimate alternative for both emerging and mid-career filmmakers outside of the traditional Hollywood community, said White, who is also the president and founder of THE ARTISTS FORUM. We are committed to producing an unparalleled opportunity for independent filmmakers to be seen and heard in New York City's formidable arts and media market.
