End of the Underground

This is sad news for me — The New York Underground Film Festival is going to have its final festival this year. They started fifteen years ago and were instrumental in helping support me when I was just starting out. They actually gave me my first grant for finishing funds on my first short film “A Waiter Tomorrow” and premiered the film in the festival. I don’t know if I would have been able to get to where I am now if they hadn’t existed. They filled the void where edgier filmmakers could actually have their films shown to audiences that appreciated them. Maybe with the internet, we don’t need these types of venues anymore, but there was something nice about having a gathering of like-minded filmmakers and film-goers. They will be missed.

If you are in New York, don’t miss your chance to be part of a legacy.
