The New York Film Society is a film society founded by Jonas Mekas in 1953. The film society showed the Whitney Brothers, Gregory Markopoulos and Kenneth Anger. The locations were at Gallery East, on Avenue A and 1st street or on Ludlow Street, in the loft of a woman by the name of Dorothy Brown.

Concurrently, Gideon Bachmann was running the Film Study Group, which Jonas Mekas joined.
