New Media Film Festival® An innovative and award-winning festival created in 2009, celebrates global stories, technology, and platforms. We continually implement new opportunities outside the norm to bolster creators in media. Through our boundary-pushing ideology, we create an environment for creators to thrive. New Media Film Festival® is an infinite catalyst for story and technology. Not just any stories, but by honoring stories worth telling.
From Oscar Winner Nick Reed:
"The New Media Film Festival seemed like an outlier when it started in 2009, with their strange categories, web series, 3D storytelling, digital comics, now all of a sudden these phrases are the new normal. The NMFF is always looking to the future, challenging creators, the market and the audience to discover new storytelling. There are not many festivals pushing the limits - go NMFF!"
From SAG Winner, Emmy & Golden Globe nominee Matthew Modine:
"New technologies have empowered and enabled creators outside of a studio or network system to make their own movies and develop cutting edge entertainment. Affordable cameras and editing software allow artists to create and express their skills for a multitude of new distribution platforms. We are presently witness to how storytelling is being redefined in the 21st Century. New Media Film Festival highlights and showcases what will come next."
"As an African-American filmmaker I've never felt more relaxed or inspired at a film festival. While #OscarsSoWhite is trending in Hollywood, The New Media Film Festival 2016 has quietly shown the world how to honor content makers from across every discipline imaginable---and every ethnicity---without sacrificing its core identity. That's an amazing feat, worthy of imitation. I think The New Media Film Festival is the future of film festivals. Congratulations!" - John Carstarphen
