Personal stories. Original ideas. New work. The mission of the Chain NYC Film Festival is to encourage the development of quality independent cinema in our burgeoning digital age. The Chain NYC Film Festival serves as a showcase to the NYC film community.
Although awards are given out in a number of categories our mission is to celebrate film and the process that brings out inspired creations. Our goal is to create a dialogue between the filmmakers and their audience.
The 3rd Annual Chain NYC Film Festival will take place at the Chain Theatre in Long Island City, Queens in August 2015. The Chain Theatre is easily accessible by subway or car in one of the most up and coming communities in the five boroughs.
