The WINTER FILM AWARDS mission is to recognize excellence and diversity in the cinema and to promote learning and expression for all artists at all stages of their careers.  We celebrate the crazy cultural mixture that is New York City, showcasing emerging filmmakers from every age, ethnic, racial, religious, cultural, political and geographic perspective.  The 48-Hour Challenge format gives filmmakers a chance to work closely with a team and to intensely focus while just going and doing it!
