The mission of the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival is twofold: one is to revitalize and bring attention to New York's Hell's Kitchen as a community of artists and film enthusiasts by way of a digital film festival at the Producers' Club which is located at the heart of Hell's Kitchen; and two, to provide a fresh and exciting New York festival audience and setting for independent filmmakers in America and around the world whose voices may still be new, undiscovered or unheralded, creating invaluable exposure for works that may have fallen through the cracks, are waiting to break through, or demand further attention. When: From Thursday, September 1 through Sunday, September 11, 2011 Where: The Producers' Club Theaters, 358 West 44th Street, btwn 8th & 9th Avenue, NYC Two blocks from Port Authority station (NY/NJ/CT buses) Walking distance and accessible to all major subway train stations: A/C/E/N/R/Q/1/2/3/7 One stop away from the Path Trains, Penn Station, and Long Island Railroad (LIRR) There will be a nightly after-party/reception to be held at the Producers' Club Bar/Lounge, including a red-carpet Opening Night gala and Closing Night reception/after-party. There will be panels and forum throughout the festival. There are competitive and non-competitive categories, including a works-in-progress section. There will be prizes in cash and in services. Each of the top winners in the U.S. (narrative and non-fiction) and World Cinema competitive section will receive a distribution deal, courtesy of the Producers' Club. A $10,000 dollar value, the theatrical distribution deal means a one-week theatrical release at the Producers' Club Theaters, including marketing and publicity (including a New York Times review).
