Xan Aranda's Andrew Bird: Fever Year was submitted and accepted to NYFF '11. Your film could be next!

The landmark 50th New York Film Festival is drawing near! In fact, we're so close that it's time to start taking submissions!

For half a century, NYFF has been bringing the art of cinema to a wide audience and helping up-and-coming filmmakers make a name for themselves. If you think you have what it takes to join the ranks of Fassbinder, Godard, Almodóvar, and Scorsese, then submit your film for consideration to what's sure to be the greatest New York Film Festival in history. Submissions can be done simply and digitally through Withoutabox.

Your film could join the ranks of countless classics that have played here at Film Society of Lincoln Center, including the select few we've been showing in our year-by-year retrospective of the 50 Years of the New York Film Festival. Who knows, we may be showing your film in another 50 years when we count down to our centennial celebration! Of course, the only way that can happen is if you submit, so act now before you miss your chance at making cinematic history!
