The Equus Film Festival highlights, acknowledges and awards the diverse and creative efforts of those who artistically pay homage to the horse.
Founded in 2013, we are the world’s premier showcase for domestic and international feature films, documentaries and shorts, in which the horse is put center stage.
Raising awareness, discussion and possibly even social change amongst a global audience and enhancing that via our founding partner, Horse Lifestyle.
Horse Lifestyle is the world’s first online streaming service dedicated to the horse and the accompanying lifestyle. By approaching the equestrian world as a segmentation of a global market, Horse Lifestyle was able to develop a state of the art online platform, serving an audience of millions of horse enthusiasts worldwide. Horse Lifestyle gathers all the best horse content and puts it in one place for people to enjoy. Varying from feature films, documentaries, TV-series, all the way to popular books and magazines. Easy to access via any device connected to the internet, anywhere in the world and at any time you desire.
Hundreds of films have gained recognition, found international distribution and reached global audiences via the festival. We believe that film holds the power to experience a story in the most compelling way. Therefore we empower storytellers to share their unique stories in the most optimal setting, a movie theater. Placing the festival in the capital of the world, New York City, where people from all walks of life can enjoy these inspiring stories.
"We look forward to welcoming you to the next Equus Film Festival, where you can enjoy an impressive lineup of films."
