The Independent Feature Project Premieres "The Future of Film Today Short Film Series" during the 34th Independent Film Week

September 18, 2012 - Each year, Independent Film Week brings new film artists to New York City to showcase their work for international film and media representatives while offering training and advocacy for emerging film professionals. As part of the week, in partnership with Royal Bank of Canada and the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment, IFP will debut “The Future of Film Today,” a short film series highlighting the work and personal stories of five talented, New York-based independent filmmakers.

This series is part of RBC’s year-round support of IFP’s Emerging Artists program, which also includes IFP’s Emerging Narrative and Emerging Visions initiatives.

Created specifically to spotlight talented, emerging artists living and working in New York City, the crossplatform series will be featured in taxis on the NYC Channel, online on NYC Media’s Video on Demand Player and on NYC life, the flagship station of NYC Media, the official network of the City of New York.

After debuting with a program in 1979 as the New York Film Festival, the nonprofit IFP has evolved into the nation’s oldest and largest organization of independent filmmakers, and also the premiere advocate for them. Since its start IFP has supported the production of 7,000 films and provided resources to more than 20,000 filmmakers. IFP fosters the development of 350 new feature and documentary films each year through its Project Forum of Independent Film Week, Independent Filmmaker Labs and projects in its fiscal sponsorship program.
