  • “The New Media Film Festival seemed like an outlier when it started in 2010, with their strange categories, web series, 3D storytelling, digital comics, now all of a sudden these phrases are the new normal. The NMFF is always looking to the future, challenging creators, the market and the audience to discover new storytelling. There are not many festivals pushing the limits - go NMFF!”
    ~ Academy Award Winner Nicholas Reed
  • “New technologies have empowered and enabled creators outside of a studio or network system to make their own movies and develop cutting edge entertainment. Affordable cameras and editing software allows artists to create and express their skills for a multitude of new distribution platforms. We are presently witness of how storytelling is being redefined in the 21st Century. NewMediaFilm Festival highlights and showcases what will come next.”
    ~ Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Matthew Modine
  • “As an African-American filmmaker I've never felt more relaxed or inspired at a film festival. While #OscarsSoWhite is trending in Hollywood, The New Media Film Festival 2016 has quietly shown the world how to honor content makers from across every discipline imaginable---and every ethnicity---without sacrificing its core identity. That's an amazing feat, worthy of imitation. I think The New Media Film Festival is the future of film festivals. Congratulations”
    ~ John Carstarphen
  • “If the TED Conference is where technology, entertainment and design meet in a broad forum, then the New Media Film Festival is its cinematic counterpart. With films, trailers, shorts, digital comics and web series that highlight new advancements in technology, financing and convergence media, each entry is a chance to think differently about movies today. Now in its eighth year, the New Media Film Festival honors stories worth telling, from a fully CG short based, to a documentary. Watch movies shot entirely on drones, attend panels where industry experts riff on the future of web series and network with entrepreneurs who understand how new media is rapidly changing the film industry today.”
