N.Y.H.C. is a documentary film directed by Frank Pavich about the mid-90s New York hardcore scene.

The documentary was acquired for distribution by HALO 8 Entertainment in December 2007. On March 25, 2008, Halo-8 released a two disc Special Edition for the documentary's first time on DVD. Disc 2 featurse previously unreleased footage including "Where Are They Now?" interviews shot ten years after the original documentary, live performances of complete songs by Vision of Disorder, Madball, 25 ta Life, 108, District 9, and more, as well as new interviews with Lou Koller (Sick of It All) and Toby Morse (H2O).



One of the few documentaries focusing on the hardcore music scene of one city (after the genre became much less tied to, and a subgenre of punk rock), N.Y.H.C. featured seven bands prominent in the mid-90s scene. A diverse grouping was selected, from Long Island suburbanites to Bronx inner-city youth to Hare Krishna devotees.
