Cityvisions 2023 - Film & Video Showcase
333 West 23rd Street (between 8th & 9th Ave)
New York, NY 10011
The longest running and most established public film school in New York City, the MFA Program in Film at the City College of New York is a small, boutique two-year program focusing on independent filmmaking. We are a culturally diverse filmmaking community, with ready access to the finest talent, locations, and production facilities of New York City. Unlike other film schools, we equally emphasize documentary and fiction filmmaking genres as vehicles for original storytelling that reflects the human experience.
This year's festival features 12 short films, 7 fiction films and 5 documentaries, representing work by directors from countries including Algeria, Bahrain, Canada, Haiti, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Peru and Taiwan. Previous films from CCNY’s MFA program have gone on to win, in student categories, four Oscars, six Oscar nominations, as well as four Emmys. CCNY MFA films have also been invited to international film festivals including Sundance, Berlin, Edinburgh, Moscow, Munich, Venice, and South by Southwest (SXSW), and Cannes.
