New NY Crossroads 2007 Film Festival is in full swing and preparations for the Premiere in Istanbul, Turkey, are well under way. NNYCR 2007 (New NY Crossroads) is a short film festival that aims to create global awareness on the issues surrounding the experiences of immigrants and their identity in their adopted homelands by supporting short film makers in the form of a film contest and festival. It is organized by JCI Istanbul, a non-profit organization, affiliated to Junior Chamber International, recognized as a partner organization for Global and Continental Initiatives by UN and various other institutions including Council of Europe and EuroChambers.
This year’s festival will be generously sponsored by AFM Cinemas in Turkey.
When it was organized for the first time in 2006, the Festival received a tremendous interest from a variety of filmmakers all over the world, and the award winners had the opportunity to reach an international audience with premiers in Istanbul – CRR, and New York, Tribeca Cinemas, and their films showcased in various university campuses.
Application deadline is AUGUST 30, 2007
