November 19-23, 2014

Nitehawk Cinema’s second annual Nitehawk Shorts Festival includes five days of short films under twenty-minutes in an opening nite, weekend matinee, and midnite screenings along with a special presentation of works by Aldo Tambellini. There will also be an opening night celebration and Filmmakers Gathering in our downstairs bar. Programs consist of short films in all forms (animation, documentary, narrative, non-narrative) by local, national, and international filmmakers.

The mission of the Nitehawk Shorts Festival is to highlight exceptional short-form film and videos by artists and filmmakers. With a focus on those working in New York, Nitehawk Shorts Festival provides a platform for local, national, and international filmmakers to engage with new audiences and to establish a dialogue with the New York/Brooklyn film community.

Prizes for the 2014 Nitehawk Shorts Festival will include post-production sound and coloring services by our sponsors Heard City and Nice Shoes. Our media sponsor is Brightest Young Things.
