The Venezuelan Film Festival in New York (founded by Irene Yibirin), is dedicated to delivering the best, most diverse and honest representation of current Venezuelan Cinema to American audiences. The film festival first appeared in 2013 as FesNuCiVe, Festival del Nuevo Cine Venezolano. In 2013, the inaugural Venezuelan Film Festival in New York had an audience of approximately 1,200 people, screening 8 films in a total of 12 screenings and garnered media attention for its bold film program. Now, in its second year, Festival organizers have doubled the size of the program from last year and are expecting to double attendance this year.
