The New York Urban Film Fest (NUFF) is now accepting submissions


The much-anticipated New York Urban Film Fest (NUFF) will have its inaugural season in New York City at the HERE Arts Center in SOHO, Manhattan. The New York Urban Film Festival (NUFF) will be accepting 6 films, no longer than 60 minutes but no shorter than 10 minutes. Each film will be shown only once during the course of the festival. NUFF will screen the best 3 shorts, less than 30 minutes, and the best full lengths, less than 60 minutes, during the festival. The best short and full based on audience surveys will receive a trophy and a monetary award of $1,000 for further production. There is no submission or participation fee. The submission deadline is October 3, 2014.

NUFF, produced by Creative Ammo Inc., was founded with the purpose to build a repertoire of new American film that echoes the true spirit of urban life and speaks to a whole new generation whose lives defy categorizing along conversational lines. That purpose is realized through the presentation of new and original films of various genres from drama to documentaries. NUFF gives writers and filmmakers from America’s burgeoning multicultural landscape the opportunity to share their stories that interpret our history and our times.
