NewFest adheres to New York City guidelines and will continue to monitor and adapt as COVID-19 circumstances evolve to provide a safe experience for all NewFest filmmakers and audiences. Proof of government ID and vaccination may be required for In-Person attendees at select venues such as SVA Theatre. When applicable, such venues will require proof of full vaccination (at least two weeks after the final dose) for all staff, audiences, and filmmakers.
In addition, we may ask for a government-issued ID. The name on the ID must match the name on the proof of vaccination. Masks will be required in the theater when not eating or drinking. NewFest reserves the right to turn any guest away and ask them to leave should they not comply with the COVID Safety Guidelines.
