Central Park Conservancy Filmfest

The Central Park Conservancy Film Festival is a beloved summer tradition that showcases great films in a great urban park. Since the Festival was founded in 2003, thousands of attendees have experienced the magic of movies under the stars, and this year we’re taking the show on the road. As part of the Conservancy’s ongoing commitment to support our fellow city parks, the 2016 Central Park Conservancy Film Festival will include free outdoor screenings in Central Park and several other city parks this summer.

Join us soon at the 2016 Central Park Conservancy Film Festival!
