New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (NYIIFVF) is a film screening event in various American cities. It was founded in 1993, and its website claims it has been recognized by the film and entertainment industry as one of the leading film events on the independent festival circuit. The festival hosts film, music and art events in Las Vegas, New York and Los Angeles. The festival is associated with the movie distribution company ITN Distribution and publishes the Independent Film Quarterly magazine. The festival has hosted works by such directors as Abel Ferrara and Mark Mahon. As well as the original documentary film from the Ghost Adventures crew.
The festival, which caters to independent filmakers, has struggled with public perceptions. It was criticized by The Village Voice in 1997, and IndieWire in 1999 for its open policy of accepting nearly every submission, as well as its $300 entry fee. The Internet Movie Database accepted the festival for years but, according to its website, NYIIFVF no longer meets its criteria for inclusion.
