About the Festival

 

The 4th Annual Chain NYC Film Festival (Chain NYC) is known for celebrating personal stories and original ideas in a buzzing metropolis that's rich with stories of its own. 

 

"
Chain NYC has been the best experience I've had, thus far, at any festival....Thank you for restoring my faith in film festivals!

"

- Cidney Hue, writer-director of the award-winning narrative short "Odessa"

 
 

The festival has proven to be an emerging festival to watch out for – in 2015 the festival screened more than 100 films and doubled in both attendance and submission size. With the goal of sparking exciting dialogue between filmmakers and their audiences, Chain NYC comes alive in New York City.
