About NOMAD Films
NOMAD Films was created as a means for exhibiting new approaches to producing and distributing short, documentary and feature films. It’s time to stop seeing lack of funding as a problem but to instead see it as a challenging way for artists to truly showcase their talents. Our partnership with “Access & PARADOX” creates an ideal opportunity for selected filmmakers to share their work with a diverse audience, ideally broadening the understanding of and appreciation for cinema and its makers.
