Nitehawk Cinema’s annual NITEHAWK SHORTS FESTIVAL is a celebration of independent short filmmaking.

NSF2018 features six days of short film screenings, special events, and parties at our Williamsburg and forthcoming Prospect Park location. As always, the festival’s short films represent our mission to highlight and support a diverse range of voices.

With prize totals over $46k, we’re honored to have such incredible partners on board for NSF2018: HuffPostHeard CityNice ShoesAbelCineLight IronThe Volunteer Lawyers for the ArtsGrado Labs, and Vimeo with hospitality sponsor The Pod Hotel and featuring drinks courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery and NY Distilling. And for the first time, Nitehawk is offering a First Time Filmmaker Award!

Nitehawk accepts short films of all genres that are made within the past two years (2016-2018) and that are under twenty minutes.

Since 2013, the mission of the Nitehawk Shorts Festival has been to highlight exceptional short-form film and videos by artists and filmmakers. The Festival’s main slate programming features a range of filmmakers, from emerging film school students to Academy Award nominees, in curated screenings that prioritize conversations between the films over categorical listings. The Nitehawk Shorts Festival provides an inclusive platform for filmmakers to encourage an engagement with new audiences and to establish a dialogue with the New York film community.
