The L.E.S. Film Festival features the innovative work of exciting up-and-coming filmmakers and artists and showcases their films in the heart of the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The James New York is partnering with the festival to offer a selection of in-room movies for guest as well as screeining films in the outdoor Urban Garden seasonally.

The Lower East Side Film Festival aims to create a special experience for both filmmaker and audience through amazing events, neighborhood engagement, free industry panels, and screenings of the best and brightest up and coming filmmaking talent. In spite of the awesome and famous talent that has passed through the festival, L.E.S. will always seek out the unsung and underdog filmmakers who know that huge budgets does not always equal a great film.
