Please join us Saturday, July 25th in the heart of the Lower East Side as we showcase 10 original short films in the capitol of the world! Each selected work will compete for a prize voted by the audience and the winning film also advances to the penultimate round in December.
Launched in the Summer of 2012, Katra Film Series screens a selection of quality shorts by emerging and award-winning filmmakers in NYC and provides a great networking platform for industry professionals. In partnership with Everyone Matters and Rhino Films the 2015 Grand Prize Winner will be awarded a one-on-one meeting with acclaimed Producer Stephen Nemeth from the Academy-Award Nominated The Sessions and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
