New York State Film Festival will be presented at the Cinepolis Chelsea Cinema in the heart of Manhattan in New York City.
The Cinepolis Chelsea Cinema, formerly known as The Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas, also hosts the Chelsea Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival, the latter founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro, and Craig Hatkoff.
New York State Film Festival is one of the most exciting film festivals in the USA, with Q&A sessions after most screenings. The festival has no premieres policy. The festival arranges various activities for guests, including a round the festival trip. Do attend a Q&A as it’s a great opportunity to meet everyone and get people to know about your work.
There is a limited space to put up posters, so distributing other marketing materials, such as postcards, might be better. Pass your film trailer to festival organisers as they will put it up on their blogs etc. Keep in daily contact with the festival’s marketing and PR staff. They can organise a lot of press opportunities for you, including press, radio and TV interviews.
