This year, the festival has teamed up with Hostos Community College in the Bronx. Select students from the CUNY school will participate in an internship with the NYC Independent Film Festival to learn all that goes into festival curation, production, and working in the film industry. Members of the festival's executive team will guest lecture at the college, and film educators from the Hostos community will lend their industry experience at some of the many panels and seminars taking place at this year's event. The festival is placing a heavy emphasis on educating young, independent filmmakers by offering panels and seminars on a wide variety of topics including Film Distribution, Music Licensing, Film Finance, Animation, Virtual Reality, and many more.
