New York Stage and Film is dedicated to creating community, supporting process and uplifting original artistic voices.
Since 1985, we have been serving artists-in-process as they create stories venturing down that path to Broadway, the cinema, and beyond. We create exhilarating spaces for creative teams to explore the questions they can’t ask anywhere else.
Every year, we support over 500 artists as they develop new works. Your support not only uplifts artists and their stories in the moment, but allows that work to have life beyond New York Stage and Film and touch audiences around the world.
