International Film Festival Manhattan (IFFM), now on it's 13th Milestone Year, is dubbed as the coolest Indie Film Festival that showcases quality selection of world-class short films that will be screened at several Theater venues in Manhattan New York City, USA.

Our short film programming encompasses all different genres of diverse program; documentaries, student films and now professional films from all over the world. We also have a focus on social relevance as part of our programming and our goals.

We are visionaries who believe in the possibilities of New York, the greatest city in the world. We have seen how film, as a powerful medium can make a direct impact on lives or facilitate change. We also have seen the unique diversity of New York's culture and its people. The city's appreciation for film and ability to make things happen. Our vision is to help merge the two, creating an opportunity for filmmakers and artist to showcase their works in New York. Support will be given to all filmmakers to help find their audiences.

We are a festival that gives importance to a full Question and Answer (Q&A) portion after each film screening. We believe that filmmakers who attend their screening should be heard and celebrated on stage. We also pride ourselves in having red carpet interview moments during the festival, IFFM is also known for it's full scale Black Tie Opening Night Awards Night. We will be featuring exclusive networking parties, Industry Meet ups, One on One Industry - Filmmaker meetings, seminars and filmmaker Q&A after each screenings.
