Our festival’s success isn’t simply the awesome filmmakers we showcase or the kickass events we put together. It’s our community -- people like you that believe in bold filmmaking, have a love for counterculture, and are looking for singular experiences they can’t find anywhere else in New York.

Donate to help keep independent filmmaking strong.

The Lower East Side Film Festival supports underdog filmmakers who know that a huge budget does not equal a great film. As an LESFF Donor you will be supporting a community of innovative filmmakers and helping us create awesome screenings, events, and parties that celebrate their work.
