Through our educational initiatives and festival workshops, HNYIFF is focused on inspiring future filmmakers and creative visionaries.  

Our workshops are taught by passionate executives, impassioned minds, and entrepreneurial spirits, and touch on a wide range of topics in the world of film and media.

HNYIFF offers hands-on internships that enable students to better understand content creation, acquisitions, independent film production, distribution and sales, writing and development, production and budgeting, and the industry at large.
