WHO WE ARE
THE ARTISTS FORUM INC is a New York City based non-profit art services organization. We specialize in events, juried competitions, and media for artists, and offer curation, design, and production management services for multi-media exhibits.

Since its inception, THE ARTISTS FORUM and its leadership has and continues to embrace people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, and faiths by providing platforms to showcase diverse viewpoints of the human experience.
“Artists are among those vibrant souls that help shape our rich culture. They spearhead movements with their talent and we turn to them for inspiration in times of need. Thank you for helping us do our part to help them flourish”
– Amos White V, President & Founder, THE ARTISTS FORUM
Our current arts competition platforms include film, music, photography and spoken word, with a choreography competition forthcoming in 2022.
Not only is THE ARTISTS FORUM a great platform to meet people or gain exposure, but it’s also the perfect medium to give back to your artistic community. There’s many exciting ways to get involved!
THE ARTISTS FORUM’s welcomes products and financial support from local and national businesses interested in working together to benefit art, culture, and diverse communities.
I can’t say enough about the quality and professionalism of this film fest. It’s very well run, welcoming, diverse, and brings to NY audiences remarkable films from around the world. I was honored to be part of the 2019 edition and so grateful for the Best Documentary and Jurors Awards. This is truly a gem! Thanks for all.
The Artists Forum is a great organization with a fantastic mission. I was proud that my short film was selected to be screened as part of their festival. [The team] was fantastic, and worked hard to facilitate engaging conversations with the artists. I would highly recommend submitting to this festival.
