ABOUT THE HIP HOP FILM FESTIVAL NYC
HHFF – NYC is a new model in film festivals, showcasing the stories and talents of the Hip Hop generation. Films submitted do not have to be about Hip Hop, we are looking for filmmakers who grew up in or loving the CULTURE of Hip Hop – which transcends race, religion, economic status or gender. Filmmakers within the culture tend to have stories that come from a unique point of view.
Those unique stories are what we seek to provide to a larger audience.
It is the first film festival of it’s kind – giving the power BACK to the filmmaker by providing guaranteed monetary support to each and every filmmaker participating in the festival. #PowerToThePeopleThroughFilm
The Hip Hop Film Festival NYC is where film meets the narrative of the Hip Hop generation.
The festival seeks to give a platform to the underserved filmmakers of the culture, while providing a different narrative to the general public.
Films selected for screening will represent the many stories that can be told by the purveyors of the genre worldwide.
Powered by Revolution Media, – the festival will launch the careers of the next batch of independent writers, directors and actors who are fueled by Hip Hop.
