About Migrating Forms

An annual festival dedicated to new film and video, Migrating Forms developed from the New York Underground Film Festival (NYUFF), which ended in April 2008. Led by the former directors and programmers of NYUFF, Migrating Forms continues the tradition of presenting a program culled from a broad spectrum of moving image practices each Spring in New York.
