Mission / description HHFF - NYC is a new model in film festivals, showcasing the stories and talents of the Hip Hop generation.

It is the first film festival of it's kind - giving the power BACK to the filmmaker by providing guaranteed monetary support to each and every filmmaker participating in the festival.


The Hip Hop Film Festival NYC is where film meets the narrative of the Hip Hop generation.

The festival seeks to give a platform to the underserved filmmakers of the culture, while providing a different narrative to the general public.

Films selected for screening will represent the many stories that can be told by the purveyors of the genre worldwide.

Powered by Revolution Media, Hip Hop Legend Ralph McDaniels (Video Music Box) and media visionary Charlette Capers (MBS Films / WYMS Ent) - the festival will launch the careers of the next batch of independent writers, directors and actors who are fueled by Hip Hop.
