YoFIFest is going online this year, but that doesn't mean you will have to miss out on one of the best film festivals in New York!
Current Status: Virtual
YoFiFest —the Yonkers Film Festival is celebrating its eighth year running after being voted as one of the top ten best things to do in Yonkers by The Journal News. Although making the transition to an online event, the festival still touts dozens of films selected by panels of professionals from the industry. One of the points of YoFiFest is to get people talking about the young, up and coming talented filmmakers from New York State. The virtual format of the event this year allows guests to browse the films by category, see a list of the movies screening and view the live schedule over the course of the festival.
Honored as one of FilmFreeways “Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals” and voted “Best of Westchester” in Westchester Magazine’s annual 2018 poll and named one of the “Top 10 Things To Do In Yonkers” in 2015 by The Journal News/LoHud.com, YoFiFest is curated by award-winning film and television professionals and designed to encourage audiences and filmmakers to watch and talk about movies together.
