From the big-budget productions on the studio lots in Queens to film students doing tracking shots with shopping-cart dollies, from the lines outside the Ziegfeld to the packed lawn at Bryant Park, from camera phones on the subway to helicopter shots over the greatest skyline in the world — New York is movie territory and nobody knows the New York movie scene like Reel 13.
Reel 13 is a community of people who love film — watching it, making it, talking about it, sharing it with others. Right here on the Reel 13 site, you can watch short films, write critiques, read our blog, and share your thoughts and observations with film fans like yourself.
And, if you’re a professional or aspiring filmmaker, you can submit your film to our weekly competition. The film that gets the most votes will air on Thirteen/WNET, America’s most-watched public television station.
Every Saturday night at 9, Reel 13 goes on the air on Thirteen, reaching a potential audience of millions throughout the New York metro region. The weekly lineup includes a classic feature, the winning short film chosen by visitors to this website, and an exciting new indie feature.
