Submit Your Short Film


NYSIFF is stationed in Albany, New York. This year the festival will reflect short films that will have a duration of 40 minutes or less.


We are now accepting film submissions. Everyone is welcome to submit their short-films.

We encourage all types of motion picture, short, documentary, animation, drama, comedy, music, horror, and educational to be submitted! Selected movies will be shown to the public during our one-week festival.

Each participant will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance which details your film production submission. Based on your creativity, you will be invited to join us for our following festival date. 


There are also judged categories such as the best short movie, the best director, the best editing, and the best animation movie awards. We, New York State International Film Festival, celebrate the art with filmmakers and their audiences. All of the audience members will vote after watching all submitted movies to decide which film was the audience's favorite.


New York State International Film Festival was created to celebrate the art with filmmakers and their audience. We strive to educate, support, entertain, and connect local and international artists through movies.

NYSIFF is determined to help and offer opportunities to artists and also the public. We hope to encourage you to make your own short film!
