New York is a city that has anything you could need, or at least, that is what it seems to be. There are a lot of options for you to do. Lots of movies have NYC as its main place to develop a story, it does not matter if it is about the end of the world or related to a love story or something. The real fact is that as New York City is that one of the most important places for the movie industry and, besides, the independent film market also has lots of things to give in this place, NYC will have on September an independent film week.
Independent Filmmaker Project is an organization based in the United States of America that basically support, produce and create everyhintg related to the independent film industry, that is why this organization decided to create and subsequently do something that could be only about the market of the independent films. What the creators thought it could be better to do so was having a week, just like the Fashion Week, for example, but this time it is about movies and its directors and producers.
Filmmaker Conferences, Project Forums, movies and more are about to be shown this week that starts on September, 2014. The idea is that this week can work as a teaching experience for all those people that is just beginning in thuis complicated, but lovely and incredible industry.
Directors and producers and independent filmmakers have been recognized and championed by the IFP before this 2014 week and some of the people that got this priceless recognition are:
- Charles Burnett

- Todd Solondz
- Mira Nair
- Todd Haynes
Storytellers, artists in general, and even actors, can be part of this week. It is also possible to be part of the organization: it is just about going to the official website and following the instructions. It seems to be a really good option for those who are interested in learning more about movies, how to make it, acting and everything related to it. During the week and the whole year, there are, as part of the creative program that the IFP,:
- conferences and more.
The IFP organization also has the Gotham Awards in which some independent films are nominees and got this prize. This is a motivation to those who are walking in the difficlut road of making a movie and, mostly, and independent one. About the movies that were nominee just last year (2013), it is possible to mention the following ones:

Inside Llewyn Davis was actually the one that got the prize and this film, as well as 12 Years a slave, are now being presented in all the different cinemas of the whole world and this is because of the success and goodness of those productions.
