New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (NYIIFVF) founded in 1993, is a film, music and art series of events at various American cities. The organizers are also associated with Independent movie distribution company ITN Distribution and Independent Film Quarterly magazine.

Controversy[edit]

The film screening event which caters to independent filmakers, has struggled with public perception and attendance. It was criticized by The Village Voice in 1997, and IndieWire in 1999[1] for its open policy of accepting nearly every submission, as well as its $300 entry fee.[2] The Internet Movie Database accepted the festival for years[3] but, according to its website, NYIIFVF no longer meets its criteria for inclusion.[4]
