2015 submission and festival dates to be announced May 2015!

Nitehawk Cinema’s annual Nitehawk Shorts Festival includes five days of short films under twenty-minutes in an opening nite, weekend matinee, midnite, and special signature series screenings. There is also an opening night celebration and Filmmakers Gathering in our downstairs bar. Programs consist of short films in all forms (animation, documentary, narrative, non-narrative) by local, national, and international filmmakers.

The mission of the Nitehawk Shorts Festival is to highlight exceptional short-form film and videos by artists and filmmakers. With a focus on those working in New York, Nitehawk Shorts Festival provides a platform for local, national, and international filmmakers to engage with new audiences and to establish a dialogue with the New York/Brooklyn film community.
