Anthology Film Archives

The NewFilmmakers series, which selects films and videos often overlooked by traditional film festivals, began in 1998 and over the past twelve years has screened over 600 features and 2,000 short films. In 2000 we brought the Havana Film Festival to New York, and in 2002 we started NewFilmmakers Los Angeles. Many well-known films have had their initial screenings at NewFilmmakers.
NewFilmmakers LA now screens monthly at the Sunset Gower Studio in Hollywood. Last year we began NewFilmmakers Online, which gives filmmakers the opportunity to exhibit and distribute their films directly to the public. NewFilmmakers also programs the Soho House Screening Series in NY & LA.
Check our schedule online at for updated information. NewFilmmakers is sponsored by Barney Oldfield Management, Angelika Entertainment, Prophet Pictures, SXM, and H2O Distribution. Please note that the NewFilmmakers series is not programmed or administered by Anthology Film Archives or its staff; for further information, please address questions via the telephone numbers or email listed below.

NewFilmmakers regularly invites leading film schools to present films and to discuss their programs with potential students. Check our website for additional information about the series. This quarter we have the Digital Film Academy and animation from the California School of the Arts.

Our Special Series give new filmmakers a chance to reach their audiences. Our NewLatino Series is now in its eighth year, and we also present Middle East NewFilmmakers, Women NewFilmmakers, and special programs curated by Third World Newsreel. We recently added a regular Animation Screening Series and a GLBT Screening Series.
