film festivals

As I mentioned in my post entitled “and the winner is” I prefer to watch independent films over big blockbusters which is why I get so excited each year for the return of the film festivals around New York.  Of course, there are so many ways to see independent film makers at their best, below is a list of the larger festivals that are taking place in the upcoming months.

April 5 – 12th SoHo International Film Festival

April 17 – 28th Tribeca Film Festival

May 11 – 17th United Film Festival

May 20 – 25th Golden Egg Film Festival

June 13 – 20th New York City International Film Festival

June 13 – 23rd LES Film Festival

June 22nd TropFest New York

Summer New York Surf Film Festival

September 18 – 23rd Urbanworld Film Festival

September 20 – 22nd Coney Island Film Festival

October 23 – 27th The Food Film Festival

November 14 – 17 New York City Horror Film Festival

Dates yet to be announced for the New York Bicycle Film Festival

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has its own lineup of film festivals at its theater with films playing year round.

And of course, there are always films showing at each of the museums relative to the exhibit they are showing at the time.  There is never a shortage of indoor activities for a rainy day.
