Film festival season is in full swing here in Manhattan, and one of the most coveted of them all is the 8th Annual Soho International Film Festival, which is kicking in a month from now on June 15th to June 22nd.  It will take place in the heart of the East Village at Village East Cinemas on 2nd Avenue, and will be the best festival to go to where the top independent films, writers, producers and directors come together for an incredibly epic week.

The SOHO Intl Film Fest celebrates the cutting-edge of digital technology while honoring traditional forms of storytelling, encourages new and seasoned filmmakers from here in New York City and around the world to create and send in their fresh and innovative cinematic pieces.

Adding to the excitement of the event, many of the selected films will hold Q & A sessions with cast & crew members following each screening; along with panels, social events, and other networking opportunities for everyone involved. Leading figures from all disciplines of the film industry including distributors and media will also be in attendance.

Notable attendees to last year’s festival included Bobby Cannavale (HBO’s “Vinyl”), Carrie Preston (Person of Interest, The Good Wife), Sean Young (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Blade Runner), Matthew Daddario (Delivery Man, Breathe In) and more!
