NEW YORK – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is proud to announce that the 20th annual Long Island International Film Expo (LIIFE), Nassau County’s longest running regional film festival, is now accepting submissions.
“The Long Island International Film Expo treats the public to a vast array of independent films of every genre and allows residents to meet many of the filmmakers while also generating a positive economic impact from filmmakers staying in our hotels and dining in our restaurants,” said County Executive Mangano. “I encourage any and all aspiring filmmakers, from right here in Nassau County, to submit their work to this prestigious festival.”
LIIFE will be held from July 13-20, 2017 at the historic Bellmore Movies and will include local and foreign film screenings, celebrity appearances, entertaining and informative panels, a star-studded awards ceremony, a Q&A with filmmakers from the world over and networking galore.
Festivals of the past have included such luminaries as Ed Asner, Blue Bloods’ Robert Clohessy, Ralph Macchio, John Amos, Ally Sheedy, 30 Rock’s Kevin Brown, Kathy Moriarty, Steve Buscemi, Ed Burns, William Sadler, Ilene Kristen, and so many more.
New this year, besides the categories of shorts, features, documentaries, student films, animations, Long Island, foreign films, music videos, trailers and screenplays, LIIFE has added a webisode component to their competition.
