The first SoHo International Film Festival, founded by Jorge Ballos and focusing on digital technology, will take place in SoHo, New York City from Feb. 18-21.

The schedule will include at least 12 feature films, in and out of competition categories as well as filmmaking panels, workshops and nightly afterparties.

"By enticing filmmakers, journalists and cineastes from America and around the globe with a strong slate of domestic and international films, we expect to draw audiences to this side of the city, known for its artistic community and cultural sophistication," Ballos said.
