Honored to be a part of this festival! The organizer was extremely gracious and responsive. The New York True Venture Film Festival is a great new addition to the New York Festival scene!

Despite the difficulties of the COVID-19 pandemic, the New York True Venture Film Festival (NYTVFF) put on an incredible virtual festival for their inaugural season. Great job! This is a festival that supports filmmakers who want to make it on their own grit and effort rather than leaving their fate up to the politics of the arts to determine the destiny of their careers. It supports “true venturing” filmmakers who know their place in society and are willing to defy odds to create films of value. Thank you NYTVFF for supporting the true artists venturing on their own from around the world. Looking forward to attending this festival in person in 2021!
