The 2017 NYC Independent Film Festival is screening three Dutch films in the festival this year.
Directed by: Tjacolien Wiersma.
“Narthex” is inspired by the “Pieta” of Michelangelo, a universally recognized symbol of human suffering and lamentation. In “Narthex,” the beholder sees a death scene under water. Water symbolizes baptism, resurrection of the dead, destroying forces and upward supporting forces. This film will screen on May 6th at 12:00pm.
Directed by: Vasily Chuprina
The story of an unlikely friendship: A young boy deep in thought, filled with melancholy, watches where his stones fall as he throws them out across the water. An old lighthouse keeper approaches, filled with care and concern for the child. The two unite in their wonderment of what lies ahead - as they try to find a different truth beyond the waters. This film will screen on May 6th at 6:00pm.
Directed by: Daan Bunnik
A young man stands at a desolated train station and talks about Tibor, the hamster he had as a kid. This film will screen on May 6th at 6:00pm.
The NYC Indie Film Festival provides a showcase for the best in independent cinema, including short films, feature films, music videos, and animated works. With panels, parties and a week-long gathering of fellow indie filmmakers, the 8th Annual New York City Independent Film Festival is the place to be May 1 - 7, 2017. The festival strives to promote an open and nurturing environment for artists, writers, actors, film-makers and fans. We will be screening the best indie films and offering panels, classes, seminars and discussion groups as well as opportunities for the filmmakers and fans to mingle and network.
The NYC Indie film Fest is eager to embrace fresh ideas and storytelling. We will be screening narratives, documentaries, short films, super shorts, animations and music videos. We are looking for filmmakers whose passion for the art form is real as they push films in new directions.
