The inaugural 2010 SoHo International Film Festival – presented by Made In New York and the Office of New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, will be held from February 18 – 21, 2010 in New York City.

The fledgling festival’s purpose is to “celebrate the cutting-edge of digital technology while honoring traditional forms of storytelling with a presentation of at least twelve feature films, in and out of competition categories.”

In addition, the festival will host film making panels, workshops and nightly after-parties.

“We received many strong foreign film submissions that should make our festival a distinguished international showcase,” said co-founder Luis Pedron in a statement. “In addition, we’ve received a good number of wonderfully original shorts and powerful independent feature films from American filmmakers. We are thrilled and honored to see the strong public, media and industry support to the festival, we truly feel this will become a very powerful platform to independent filmmakers and a lush landscape for distributors to glean the top, fresh films coming from them!”
