About movies4movies

movies4movies is a quarterly film festival committed to providing opportunities for filmmakers to show their work and to supporting independent film by providing grants to filmmakers.

Our one day festival features programming that includes feature films, short films, and documentaries as well as networking opportunities.

The first installment of movies4movies was held on Saturday, February 25 at the Dobbs Ferry Public Library to great success: over 185 audience members attended screenings and programs over the course of the day! We look forward to more successful festivals in May and August of 2017!
