NYC 2 Paris International Film Festival

The NYC 2 Paris International Film Festival was an annual event held in two of the most exciting cities in the world – New York City and Paris! Every film selected were shown in both cities. In 2020 after 2 editions, it was decided to end the event.

Our mission was to help indie filmmakers meet their international peers and show their work in different parts of the world. NYC2Paris focuses on the idea of filming internationally and going over frontiers to create art.

This event was directed by Lucie Guillemot and was founded by both Dennis Cieri and Lucie Guillemot.

Keep making film!
