The Malarkey Film Festival was

co-founded by Claire Kleinman and Isabel Monk Cade in an effort to take some of the hot air out of filmmaking by lowering the stakes, encouraging audience involvement, and maintaining a commitment to accessibility.

ma·lar·key

/məˈlärkē/

noun: malarkey

  1. meaningless talk; nonsense.

    "that's a bunch of malarkey!"

 

(We feel it’s important to note here that we are not endorsing Joe Biden). 

 

The Malarkey Film Festival is a mostly-for-fun but

serious-about-art screening event created with the

intent to celebrate film, its makers and its community. 

 

We strive to create a process that emphasizes the pleasure in creating with the hope of alleviating the inhibiting fear of showing work. We change festival guidelines

every single time.

MFF is also a venue to get to know the filmmaking community in NYC, where you can build creative and working relationships at our events.
