According to the festival’s Website:

“Film Rockland has been working with productions seen in cinemas and streams for the past 3 years and now wants to provide filmmakers the opportunity to be a part of New York’s best and newest film festival!

“The Northwest of NYC Film Festival is a three day event that honors and celebrates the rich history of film and the arts in Rockland County and the greater Hudson Valley region. Rockland has long been New York’s backlot, from the earliest days of moviemaking with Thomas Edison’s 1898 historic “Loading Ice on Cars” filmed at what is now Rockland Lake State Park to most recently Scorcese’s The Irishman. Rockland has become a prime shooting location for many of your favorite productions: The Manchurian Candidate, Orange is the New Black, Sneaky Pete, and Billions.

Everyone deserves a chance in the spotlight, so show us what you’ve got.

Literally underground, The Cut Cinema is Canton’s Independent Cinema – a place to see films that you can’t find anywhere else.
