Electronic Media and Film

Electronic Media and Film are among the most dynamic art forms of our time. From analog to digital, the EMF Program is dedicated to Art & Technology as a creative practice, across all genres of time-based and emergent technology, including historical and rarely seen works. Through the presentation and preservation of electronic media as an art form, EMF fosters the contemporary and diverse cultural voices of New York.

EMF does not accept applications from individual artists. Production funding for independent film and media artists is available through NYSCA’s Individual Artists Program.
