NYFEST 2015

By Zori Davidkova, Community Outreach Coordinator, Made in NY Media Center by IFP

We tell stories, we innovate, we make cool apps and we also play soccer!

The Made in NY Media Center by IFP team, the Mighty Mammoths, participated in the NYFEST Industry Soccer Tournament. Amongst the 44 teams, we saw appearances from Sony Picture Classics, Tribeca Film Festival, Nickelodeon, The Hollywood Reporter and many more.

Together with team captain, Zack Wilson (Plotpoint), 10 other Media Center members showed off their soccer skills against the teams of Park Picture, TFF Shorts and StonyBrook Killers. Justin Mahy (Thrive), Aubrey Lethbridge (Three Flat Feet), Alan Thompson (Three Flat Feet), Evan Neuwirth (Three Flat Feet), Michael Vanderpool (The Made in NY Media Center by IFP), Avi Michael (Thrillian), Matt Watkajtys (kMusicBox), Brendan Schlagel (Hoyt Street Productions), Anil Tan (Accedo), and our MVP female player Victoria Negri successfully passed their three qualification games in the “Just for Kicks” Part of the event and got to the playoffs.

Thank you to our friends from Sony Picture Classics and NYFEST for a wonderful day of sun, fun and quality soccer time!
