Concourse Film Festival highlights a profound collection of films, music videos, commercials and online content from Bronx filmmakers and visual artists all across the country. We strive to become the defining filmmaking platform for our Bronx filmmakers and all filmmakers alike.
The 2018 Concourse Film Festival started off with a BANG! With a number of different vendors offering food, drinks, deserts, and original merchandise, and possibly the biggest Red Carpet set up, doubling as a stage, guests were welcomed with live performances by Poet Cito Bangz, Hip Hop artist Chy Boogie and 15yr old music sensation, Jovonne Nieves.
The main event featured films from seasoned veterans like Mo Zapata and his comedy horror “Aye Que Susto,” Jesse Ruuttila’s “The Smell,” and the break away hit from Bronx-Native filmmaker Marlee Liz and her documentary short film, “Silver Dreams.”
The night ended with networking, fun, laughs, memories and the realization that filmmakers have a new home and its in the Bronx!

Stay tuned for NEXT YEAR! The 2nd Concourse Comedy Festival is set to make history, AGAIN!
Concourse Art Foundation
The Concourse Art Foundation is a community based, non- profit organization that provides a platform for all artists through a series of festivals, each geared towards a different art form. Film festival, comedy festival, food festival, dance festival, etc. Eleven different festivals, one for each month, with a grand festival at the end of the year, showcasing the best of the best of all the other festivals.
Each department (film, comedy, music, food, dance, etc.) will also run a 10-week program for the local youth, hiring artists to teach their craft. The youth will learn how to do it, learn how to make money doing it, and we'll add a financial literacy component, so students can become familiar with how to make money work for them. An accelerated trade school for the arts.
