MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Our MISSION is to discover, promote and give venue to independent filmmakers, not just from the greater New York area, but from other regions of America and abroad.
For 35 years, the Long Island Film Festival has presented high quality film programs and has made a major contribution to the Long Island community by promoting films that are entertaining, educational, thought provoking and enhance the general public's understanding of cinema culture and the humanities.
The Long Island Film Festival is the Longest Running International Film Festival on Long island.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
During those 35 years, we have witnessed filmmaking transform itself from a strictly film medium to a highly technological global digital art form with sophisticated software operating on specially configured computers. As a result, there are more filmmakers attempting to break into the film industry. It is those new filmmakers that the Long Island Film Festival seeks to discover.
Our World Lens series focuses on foreign Indie filmmakers that are producing films that are pieces of their culture and set in economic, social, environmental, and political spheres. It is the commitment of the Long Island Film Festival to promote these films and support independent filmmakers around the world.
The Long Island Film Festival online will be active for the month of August 2017. Our festival is second to none. We guarantee that the site is completely secure from bootleggers and intruders.
The added benefit is that industry personnel and distributors have free access to view your films.
Throughout 2017, your films will be screened at several venues across Long Island.
