The Made in New York Media Center by IFP opened on October 31 as a central place for innovators in film, video, gaming, and technology to collaborate through education, mentorship, entrepreneurship, and content creation.

Since its opening a little over a month ago, the Media Center has hosted a number of events including a three-day game jam with gaming partner TreSensa. 

Other highlights from the Media Center's opening month include: 

  • More than 40 events, workshops, and classes held in its 20,000 square-foot space, accounting for more than 2,500 visitors, students, partners, and community members
  • An inaugural screening of Gotham Independent Film Awards nominees in the center's brand new Cinema (pictured above)
  • Over 280 membership applications and inquiries

Stay tuned for upcoming events including a showcase of featured projects from the Center's first 50 members and a Transmedia seminar with Jeff Gomez from Starlight Runner Entertainment, the first event of its kind on the East Coast.

Congratulations on a successful first month! Learn more about our other incubators on the NYCEDC website.
