Through powerful, exhilarating films and conversations, the festival presents an extraordinary opportunity to exchange ideas, celebrate the wild and effect change.
The New York WILD Film Festival is a platform to create excitement, identify critical issues, build partnerships, and reach audiences that care about exploring, discovering and protecting our planet.

The New York WILD Film Festival is delighted to continue our third year partnership with NYU and NYU Shanghai. NY WILD and NYU faculty from multiple academic departments collaborate to create a film festival program tailored for students that are hosted on these two campuses. “Inspiring the young future leaders of our planet is a vital part of NY WILD and NYU’s mission,” says Founder Nancy Rosenthal.
For the second year in a row, NY WILD and NYU are partnering on the student short film contest, WILD in NY. Students create a 2-5 minute film about something they find WILD in New York. The top three student filmmakers will win prizes from Moondog Labs and the winning films will be shown at NY WILD at the Explorers Club, at NYU and at NYU Shanghai. Read more here.
