New York No Limits Film Series (NYNL)

NYNL’s final short film program of 2012 reaches into the pale depths of grim reality and austere imagination to formulate a formidable evening of short films as the filmmaker’s on the card tap into social commentary and hard boiled cinema. With films that envelop unforgiving worlds such as HATCH, I AM JOHN WAYNE and the startling documentary LOST HOPE the program gives the audience filmmaker’s who examine the world at large. The lineup rounds out with HIP PRIEST, 003064.XZ, and the animated UPROOTED offering up experimental drama that twists the palate of genre to evoke the underground film movement of the 1980’s.

The NYNL Film Series culminates in November with the 2012 Summit, a festival event showcasing the outstanding short films from the past year and Feature film selections.
