“The Long Island International Film Expo is yet another way we market and promote Nassau County as a filming destination,” said County Executive Mangano. “By having filmmakers from all over the globe attend, we are able to show them available filming sites as well as generate dollars for our local economy.”
LIIFE will be held from July 9th – 17th, 2014 at the Bellmore Movies and will include screenings of hundreds of short and feature-length independent films as well as documentaries, animations, student films, and music videos. There are informative and entertaining panels with industry experts, celebrities in attendance, parties, filmmaker Q & As, and plenty of networking opportunities for those in the industry or film enthusiasts in general.
The Long Island Film/TV Foundation has the right to reject any films or withdraw any acceptance letter issued to any film, at any time prior to the commencement of that year’s festival, in the foundation’s absolute discretion.
