The Independent Film Quarterly magazine (IFQ) together with Independent movie distribution company ITN organized the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival between 1993[1] and 2013. The IFQ magazine was closed in December 2015.

FestivalEdit

The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival was a film, music and art series of events at various American cities, founded in 1993. The festival also ran a parallel event titled Independent Film Quarterly Film & Webisode Festival during its last four years.

The festival struggled with public perception and attendance. It was criticized by The Village Voice in 1997, and IndieWire in 1999,[2] for its open policy of accepting nearly every submission, as well as its $300 entry fee.[3] The Internet Movie Database felt that it did not meet the website's criteria for inclusion[4] and stopped documenting festival entries in 2006, only listing award winners until 2013.[5]
