March 27, ’14 – The entry deadline for the 2nd installment of the 2014 New York No Limits Film Series has come to a close. The NYNL team is now hard at work reviewing all submissions to bring our audience an exciting lineup for the May 22nd showing at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.  And our submitting filmmakers do not make this task easy whatsoever; with each round of submissions, the filmmakers continue to surprise and amaze us with their talent, giving the New York No Limits Film Series the opportunity to continue presenting the very best from up-and-coming filmmakers.  

March 6, 2014 Program Recap - marked the inauguration of the 2014 New York No Limits Film Series season.   Taking place at The Wild Project in the East Village, NYC, the night brought together six short films selected from several dozen submissions hailing from as far as South Korea, CzechRepublic, Israel and Switzerland.  Tom Escovar, NYNL’s Head of Programming, kicked off the event with an introduction to the festival and the directors in attendance.   

Representing a wide range in filmmaking endeavors, the lineup that night included a piece on freedom presented through the art of animation (Flight of the Soul, directed by Caitlin Inzinna, USA); an exploration of relationships and time, perception and reality in narrative form (Breakfast with Pete, directed by Niloo Ravaei, Canada); and a dark comedy about one woman’s unfettering determination and stop-at-nothing will to kill an inconspicuous target (Killing Vivian, directed by Mandy Fabian, USA).  Also featured was Incalcitranous Rex, a pop-art, sci-fi film which flies in the face of computer-generated imagery and in the process, wins its own fans (directed by Matt Willis-Jones, Norway).  The festival also included the premiere of Hiccup, directed by Alyssa Radmand and Griffin Devine, tackling the unfortunate consequences of one man’s affliction with chronic hiccups.  Making his directorial debut, Jack Stannard gave life above-ground to an underground artist with his documentary FlyeLyfe NYC (USA).  

Following the screenings, Jennifer Gibli, NYNL’s Associate Director of Programming, brought the filmmakers in attendance (Niloo Ravaei, Jack Stannard, Alyssa Radmand and Griffin Devine) onstage for a Question & Answer session aimed at providing the audience with greater insight into how the films were shot, as well as the inspiration behind them.  To top off the night, PJ O’Rourke, the subject of Stannard’s documentary, gave audience members an up-close opportunity to see his work, his studio cart and even the chance to purchase his works for their personal art collections.
