New York City’s Trailblazing Arthouse Film and Multiarts Event return to The Bronx outdoors venue This time on City Island, A Slice of NYC Paradise. This pioneering film and the multi-arts festival is inspired by the culture and returns to the great outdoors in The Bronx for the third summer in a row.

This summer will screen a total of 32 films from 20 nations and 28 directors in all styles and genres with many of the US or New York City premieres. They offer strong showings by female directors and women’s themes.

The Summer Cycle is long on animation, short documentaries, and dance film. This offers a memorable film-viewing experience that has made a niche of its own in the city’s bustling arts landscape.

Bronx World Film Cycle, Summer 2019 is the signature program of Bronx World Film, Incorporated, a non-profit founded in 2011 with the motto “art-house film for integral human development.” They've held the annual Winter Cycle at a host venue in Manhattan, the Spanish Benevolent Society, since its founding.

Specializing in women and young film directors they have given many a young artist their NYC or US premieres, a privilege granted to an emerging organization by a growing community of world filmmakers who have a platform unavailable to them anywhere else. The Summer Cycle is strong on animation, dance film, short documentaries, and digital art films carefully curated to appeal to all ages and walks of life.
