EQUUS Film Festival


Our festival has been created to highlight and award the diverse and creative efforts of those who artistically pay homage to the horse. The festival empowers storytellers to show the rich history and diverse tapestry of horses in human culture through equestrian content.  We have feature films, documentaries, shorts, music videos, commercials, training educational materials, art and literature.
As home to the storytellers of the horse world, the EQUUS Film Festival, November 17-20, 2016 at the Village East Cinema in New York City, is the first event of its kind dedicated to equestrian-themed film, fine art and authors. The EQUUS Magazine Directors Panels,  EQUUS Pop-Up artist, filmmaker and literary gallery, Li'l Herc™ Family Fest with free Saturday family films and fun, Sunday tours of the Carriage Horses Stables, and a Thursday evening VIP Party, winding up with the WININE Award Ceremony and party on Saturday evening are all part of the festival event program.
Founded in 2013 the EQUUS Film Festival 2015 presented over 150 films and 32 WINNIE Awards including Equestrian Art Film, Director, Documentary, Commercial, International, Music Video, People’s Choice and Best of Festival. The addition of WINNIE Award categories in 2016 for Literature and Art will round out our commitment to being the home to the storytellers of the horse world.
