Every block and neighborhood corner in New York City has a story to be told.

One of the largest towns in the world shows its many different colors, contrasts and souls in the eyes of the newyorkers. Eyes full of hope and strength and incomparable impressions.

This can make New York a familiar town still to be discovered: it will be thrilling to spot your everyday life among the skyscrapers, on the subway or at school, hanging around shops, play fields and parks.

Record your story and share with us your own NY experience in the vibrant and constantly evolving City.
We can’t wait to know about your neighbor and their collection of hats from all over the world, your favorite barbershop or the gym where you train, the dog you rescued from the street, your days in a taxi, the faces you come across on your way to work.


Show the world your 5-minute aNYstory by short clips, interviews or simple shots even with your smartphone.
Some of the best clips will be published on the DFF IGTV and one winner will be screened out of competition during the 2021DFF live screening event in Dumbo on September 3-7, 2021.
100% of the funds collected from the aNYstory competition will be donated to The Central Park Conservancy.
