We understand that the recent news and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation may have caused you to rethink your travel plans and your attendance to the New York City Independent Film Festival. We will do whatever we can to support you by providing you with as much information as we have. We are continually monitoring the situation, including travel restrictions and updates to travel policies that may impact you.

Our top priority is everyone’s health and wellbeing. We highly recommend everyone everywhere follow the health and travel advice of relevant authorities. The USA government's CDC has ordered no large event happen for the next eight weeks. New York City has closed all theaters, bars and restaurants until at least April 20 but there is a chance the closures will last longer, possibly for eight weeks, according to CDC guidelines.

In light of these events we are moving the festival to new dates:

May 31 to June 7, 2020.

We are also looking at offering digital options for those who cannot make it to NYC no matter what dates we hold the festival this year.

We will keep everyone posted in this ever-changing environment.

Sincerely,

NYC Independent Film Festival
