The Northwest of NYC Film Festival is a three day event that honors and celebrates the rich history of film and the arts in Rockland County and the greater Hudson Valley region. Rockland has long been New Yorks backlot, from the earliest days of moviemaking with Thomas Edisons 1898 historic Loading Ice on Cars filmed at what is now Rockland Lake State Park to most recently Scorceses The Irishman. Rockland has become a prime shooting location for many of your favorite productions: The Manchurian Candidate, Orange is the New Black, Sneaky Pete, and Billions. Is yours next?
During the three day festival, more than 60 films will be screened across a diverse offering of Rockland venues, including the historic Lafayette Theater in Suffern, the AMC Theatre at the Palisades Center in West Nyack, and the Garner Arts Center in Haverstraw. Filmmaker Q&As as well as an opening night gala and closing night award ceremony allow filmmakers to network with colleagues and industry professionals.
