#NIFF2019 ADDS NEW SCREENPLAY CATEGORY


Houston, Texas – February 22, 2019 – NextActorStudio's International Film Festival (NiFF), Houston, presented by Next Actor Studio, will hold its 5th edition from October 16 – October 19, 2019.

This year, we are excited to announce the inclusion of a brand new SCREENPLAY category, catering to short and feature film writers. 
We will judge the screenplay at the studio, by table-reading each submitted script with actors from Next Actor Film School, Houston. The finalists will be included in our selections, while the best script will be announced during awards ceremony.

We are also excited by the submission we have started receiving from returning Niff Alum and a number of fantastic works from new filmmakers across the globe.

It humbles us to read the testimonials our amazing attendees have left for us on film freeway.

Niff was started in 2015 to expose the students of Next Actor Studio to meaningful cinema and quality productions made across the globe, that did not get viewed in Houston. We are happy to share that, last year, we held the entire festival at our premise where filmmakers shared their stories and deeply inspired our alum and viewers. Films from Bulgaria, China, England, Ethopia, France, Germany, India, Japan, and USA were presented at the festival, and their makers or their representatives were present at the studio to take questions from the audience.

Niff Houston has been a truly independent film festival, standing on its own, for the love of arts so we, at Next Actor Studio, can enjoy the 4 days of festivities with like-minded artists, filmmakers, and film aficionados, in an intimate setting where we can exchange dialogue, and create more artists by sheer inspiration.

 Thank you.
