NYC Indie Theatre Film Festival (LIVE + VIRTUAL)
New Ohio Theatre
This year’s hybrid NYC Indie Theatre Film Festival (NYCITFF), presented by the New Ohio Theatre, is in-person and online, co-curated by Allyson Morgan and Marc Stuart Weitz. NYCITFF offers a selection of new feature-length and short films, filmmaker Q&As, and an opening night conversation on Thursday, February 10 at 7pm ET with playwright and theatre director Erica Schmidt, screenwriter of MGM’s upcoming musical romantic drama, CYRANO.
NYCITFF runs from February 10 - 13 with selected screenings in person at New Ohio Theatre (154 Christopher St.) in Manhattan’s West Village, followed by an online presentation from February 14 - 20.
Nine new feature films feature theatre artists stretching themselves in exciting, moving and vulnerable films. In addition, 48 short films (including 17 world premieres) from fresh new talent will be presented across seven programs.
Some films to note that will be of interest to the dance world are THE LUXE HOTEL (fusing mime, butoh, fake slow motion and dance), APPLIQUE (a collaborative movement animation), GENESIS, THE COLLABORATIVE DANCE PROJECT (a “conversation” in movement and music with choreographer Razvan Stoian of Battery Dance), and WHILE YOU WERE GONE (directorial debut of noted hip-hop choreographer Jennifer Weber that features 33 local student dancers).

The NYC Indie Theatre Film Festival presents work from independent theatre artists defying labels and branching out into film, TV and digital media. This year they’re screening over 50 original works, ranging from narrative, documentary, shorts, features, dance, animation, webisodes and everything in-between. 2022, their 6th year, is a hybrid year. Selected screenings will be in-person, and most screenings will be available online. They’re excited once again to leverage the internet’s wide reach to engage with an international community of fellow theatre artists and to showcase voices and perspectives from across the globe.
