[SHORTS] Made in NY

This program offers a diverse cross section of New York City presented by NY-based storytellers. An unlikely friendship develops between an aspiring actress and shopkeeper; a Chinese American father in Brooklyn faces challenges while raising his black son; and a young woman finds community and inspiration in the queer Asian dance party, Bubble_T. These are narratives that could only unfold in New York, as stories in and of the city.

After your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to view the film. For more information and FAQ’s, please visit our How To Festival section.
