Chain NYC Film Festival is an annual event dedicated to encouraging the development of quality independent cinema in this fast-evolving digital age by bringing filmmakers and audiences together to connect with each other and experience new cinematic works.

With a rotating schedule of both feature films and shorts ranging from narrative to documentary and even web series, this annual summer festival will screen more than 130 selections over the course of 10 days.

Highlights of the 2019 Chain NYC Film Festival include the documentary "The Billion Dollar Power Station" featuring interviews with music icons Bryan Adams, Steven Tyler, Berry Gordy, and Paul Schaffer, as well as the narrative features "The Last Witness" (starring Alex Pettyfer and Michael Gambon) and "Windows on the World" (starring Ryan Guzman).

For 2019, the festival expands to two screening rooms, providing audiences the opportunity to enjoy even more new works, including New York and World Premieres, by both established and up-and-coming filmmakers. Each screening block is followed by a moderated talkback with the writers, directors, and other associated artists.
