The award winning Nassau Film Festival returns (virtually) May 15-23
A Celebration of Short Films From Around the Globe
The Nassau Film Festival (NFF) screens short films and music videos (30 seconds to 20 minutes) in the following categories: fiction, documentary, animation, student fiction, horror, music videos, trailers, and episodic.
It will be presented this year, virtually, from May 15-23.
Best of Festival Awards are given in each of the categories and attendees have a chance to network with actors, actresses, directors, writers, producers and directors of photography at a special festival event.
Audience members will also have the opportunity to participate virtually in question-and-answer panel discussions with filmmakers whose films are selected to screen at the festival.
NFF Founder and Festival Director Lew Goldstein got the idea to start the festival after noticing a gap in the area for individuals who focused on short films. Each year the number of film submissions for Festival consideration has grown.
“As the festival has grown more filmmakers are realizing that this is a festival which is drawing serious attention in the film community. We are seeing a growth each year in submissions and the festival going audience has packed the Princeton Garden Theatre knowing that the films chosen to be screened by the judges are of high quality,” Goldstein said. “While we will be doing a virtual festival in 2021 consisting of the best worldwide short films of 2020, it is our hope that by May 2022 everyone will feel more comfortable about entering the historic Princeton Garden Theatre again to watch films on the big screen and to enjoy the festival atmosphere in person.”
NFF highlights extraordinary independent films from filmmakers representing countries in six continents. Additionally, films from the USA as well as regional and local filmmakers are highlighted. The works of selected new student filmmakers are also screened.
Over the years, NFF has earmarked funds donated from patrons and sponsors each year to assist various non-profit organizations. Those organizations the Festival has donated to over the years include the American Cancer Society, Womenspace, Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK).
