Award-winning NYC Post Group will make your film sound fantastic #WFA2016

nycpostlWinter Film Awards is teaming up with NYC Post Group for our 2016 Independent Film Festival!

The 5th Annual WINTER FILM AWARDS Independent Film Festival runs Feb 18-26 2015 with jam-packed days of screenings, networking events and after-parties. The event offers something for everyone, highlighting the dynamic range of storytelling the independent filmmaking community has to offer. Among the 86 Official Selections to be screened at Cinema Village in the heart of the East Village (22 East 12th Street, New York, NY 10003), is a diverse mixture of 12 documentaries, 34 shorts, 10 narrative features, 9 animations, 7 music videos, 9 horror films and 5 web series, including 8 student films, 36 female directors and representation from 26 countries.

Sound Design is critical to your independent film – no matter how creative your vision and how amazing your actors, if your sound is terrible, you’ll lose your audience.  On Tuesday, February 23, NYC Post Group’s award-winning sound designer Paul Michael will lead a free discussion panel covering all aspects of sound design for low-budget films to ensure your film is the absolute best it can be.

Winter Film Awards participants and attendees will receive a 15% discount on all sound editorial services and a 10% discount for original music composition.
