Film Works

There are no film cinemas in Northern Manhattan. There should be!

In response to this physical and artistic vacancy, Inwood Art Works develops its Film Works programs to improve the quality of life in Northern Manhattan by creating artistic platforms that not only makes a cultural impact, but also serves as a resource for a neighborhood with an abundant population of talented filmmakers.

The heart of Film Works is the annual Inwood Film Festival, but throughout the year there are also special screenings including the Film Works Alfresco outdoor summer film program, and the Scary Cinema Series in October.

Inwood Art Works Film Works programming is focused foremost on showcasing and celebrating the Inwood community through the moving image. It is dedicated to presenting independent films made in Inwood and by local area filmmakers.  Yet, it is also open to exhibiting work that has cultural relevance and can be appreciated by local audiences.
