The Chelsea Film Festival is an emerging film event in New York City that aims to highlight great independent films over the course of four days in the fall. The festival is hosted by the Chelsea Film Institute, a non-profit organization that works to expose underprivileged youth in Chelsea, NYC to the arts. By providing free art classes for these children and teens, the organization hopes to promote creative, and tolerance.
Although the festival takes place in October, the Chelsea Film Institute is already accepting submissions for its 2015 edition. For more information on deadlines and eligibility visit the festival’s official site HERE.
