New Independent Platform for NYC Video Creators Seeks Kickstarter Backing

NYC.TV is a new, online, public access-inspired, video-only platform "dedicated to creating, promoting, and distributing video" created in New York, by New Yorkers. And it currently needs your help to continue its awesome mission of providing an invaluable showcase for many of New York City's most inventive and ambitious moving image makers.

The minds behind NYC.TV -- Kareem Ahmed, Alexandra Serio, and Max Nelson, all vets of various media titans -- recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help maintain its website of cool, eclectic, and carefully-curated content, with plenty of attractive prizes for backers who can hopefully raise $50,000 by Tuesday, July 7th, so that the site can continue to serve as an arena for some of this city's best unseen media creators to get their work the eyes it deserves.

Donate here, if you can, and even if you can't, be sure to tune in to the incredibly wide array of programming NYC.TV has to offer, a magnificently mixed, New York-centric bag of diverse people, places, and things, all in one location for your viewing ease and pleasure. Like the city it's based in, there's something here to appeal to all interests, from ongoing comedic web series and (wo)man-on-the-street features to diverse docuprofiles and original animated pieces.

Take a look at some of our favorites and go to the site to discover your own:

“Her performance requires us to pay a great deal of attention to the detail and implication laid out across her expressive face, but the final result is a nothing less than a vigorously full-bodied creation.” In an ideal world, the amazing Lily Gladstone would have been an Oscar contender for her revelatory, @FilmIndependent-nominated performance in Kelly Reichardt’s exceptional drama CERTAIN WOMEN. Find out why. Link in bio.

As we continue our #BlackHistoryMonth exploration of Tribeca selections helmed by black directors, it's time to turn our attention to a daring and genuinely monumental exercise that was ignored upon its first bow but remains radical and required viewing for anyone who cares about the past, present, and future of movies. In 2005, writer, director, documentarian, and film movement leader William Greaves debuted SYMBIOPSYCHOTAXIPLASM: TAKE TWO AND A HALF, in which the late indie pioneer, with the help of invaluable executive producers Steve Buscemi and Steven Soderbergh, revisited and reconceived his 1968 avant-garde landmark, a cult classic and film school staple that acerbically captured the making of a film within a film within a film. Greaves' update of his experimental, docu-fictional meditation on the warped and knotty act of moviemaking only intensifies this fluid work's status as a bona fide cinematic revolution unto itself.

Like Haile Gerima's HARVEST: 3,000 YEARS, today's #BlackHistoryMonth selection highlights another retrospective screening from a past Tribeca Film Festival. From 1989, Charles Lane's Sidewalk Stories is a silent masterpiece that updates Charlie Chaplin's soulful slapstick for modern times but imparts a heartrending worldview all its own. It tells the story of a homeless New York artist who assumes parental responsibilities for the young daughter of a murdered man, finding humor and humanity in every corner of the city. If you have yet to see this independent gem, seek it out immediately.
“I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” Raoul Peck’s magnificent new film essay @IAmNotYourNegro dives into the complex legacy of the peerless, fearless writer and social critic James Baldwin, seen here in Istanbul circa 1960. @Eng_Matthew explains why it’s necessary viewing.
