New York Stage and Film has always been dedicated to creating community. This year, we focused on bridging the digital divide in order to foster an environment of artists supporting artists.


NYSAF adapted our programming to create tailored processes in order to meet the very real – very acute – needs of artists. Since March, we’ve creatively and financially supported over 150 artists and developed over 25 projects through our NYSAF NOW programming.


Your belief in supporting new work directly impacts artists (Meet them through our ARTIST SPOTLIGHTS) and brings you into this artistic community we are so committed to fostering-- even during this time when we cannot be together. 


Meet some of the NYSAF Artists and find out where and how they find creative hope. 

For 36 years, New York Stage and Film has been at the forefront of storytelling; a catalyst for original stories that start with us and impact audiences across the country and around the world. Our dedication to process, community and original artistic voices is even more crucial now and is guiding us to an exciting future. Our supporters sustain the work for these artists and are crucial participants in the creation of these new works.

As a supporter of New York Stage and Film, you will: 

  • Encourage artists at all stages of their careers to take creative risks, experiment, and tell vibrant, diverse stories

  • Directly support artists with fair pay for all of their work and professional opportunities 

  • Join a vital community and have a direct relationship with the artists at the heart of it

  • Ensure that the public can continue to play its crucial part in the development process of new work by keeping ticket prices low

  • Help launch landmark work like Hamilton, The Humans, Doubt, American Idiot, and hundreds of other projects that trace their developmental roots to New York Stage and Film
