Two Evenings featuring the best works from filmmakers who participated in New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp, a program for arts professionals in all fields looking to focus on the business side of their creative practice. The first evening showcases short films from four filmmakers who explore themes such as immigration, stereotypes and city life.

The Bootstrap Arts Festival has emerged out of NYFA’s on-going Boot Camp which is designed to help define concrete steps to building a business plan that can lead to greater financial security. The Bootstrap Arts Festival, a vibrant new cornerstone of the New York City arts scene, is rolling out in February with a series of arts events covering a wide range of disciplines. Taking place throughout the month, at various locations across the five boroughs, the festival includes performing, literary, visual and media arts. The Bootstrap Arts Festival is presented by Artspire and New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA).
