Through our festival internships and panel discussions, HNYIFF is focused on inspiring future filmmakers and creative visionaries.  

Our panel discussions include passionate executives, impassioned minds, entrepreneurial spirits, and touch on a wide range of topics in the world of film and media.

HNYIFF offers hands-on internships and networking opportunities throughout the week 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.
