NYLIFF

New York Long Island Film Festival

Welcome to NYLIFF. The New York Long Island Film Festival. Our goal is to give equal opportunity to filmmakers, writers and artists who put their heart and soul into filmmaking, especially those who may not have all the resources necessary to perfectly polish their work! Artists in the past were discovered for their unique talents and abilities even if all the technical aspects were not in place. Recognizing a great story, actor, script or any other artist while not yet perfected should be the job of those doing the evaluating. Whether you have a 10 million dollar indie or an ultra low-budget iphone short, we are interested in you.

NYLIFF

The Full Story

Our Film Festival our team brings years of experience as writers, actors, musicians and of course filmmakers, dedicated to bringing the greatest talents to our big screens as well as discovering those hidden geniuses and gems.  It’s this standard of excellence and commitment we hope will  establish us as the most innovative film festival in the New York area for many years to come.


Premiering out of Seaford, Long Island in New York and now in Lindenhurst for 2020 we are perfectly located for convenience to Manhattan but ease of travel by car or train.
