From Chain’s website:

The 6th Annual Chain NYC Film Festival (Chain NYC) is known for celebrating personal stories and original ideas in a buzzing metropolis that’s rich with stories of its own. The festival has proven to be an emerging festival to watch out for – in 2017 the festival screened more than 130 films and doubled in submission size and tripled in audience size. With the goal of sparking exciting dialogue between filmmakers and their audiences, Chain NYC comes alive. Now celebrating our new space in midtown Manhattan!


Past events included a special screening of The Fisher King followed by an insightful talkback with screenwriter Richard LaGravenese (Behind the Candleabra, Freedom Writers, The Bridges of Madison County). In 2016, Richard Price gave an unforgettable talk back after the 30th Anniversary Screening of the Color of Money and also spoke about his HBO smash hit series The Night Of.  In 2014, a staged reading of Karen Black’s work featuring Sean Young, Andrea McArdle, and Gail Brown was a festival highlight. John Cassavetes’ 1959 film Shadows, was followed by an engaging Q&A with actress Leila Goldoni in 2013.

Chain NYC may be only six years old, but that hasn’t stopped countless visitors from singing the festival’s praises and traveling from around the world.
