The 5th Annual Queens World Film Festival will ran March 17-22, 2015. The opening will be at the Museum of the Moving Image. Over the next several days they will roll out to multiple venues in Jackson Heights and Long Island City with 116 films.
Turning five in 2015, QWFF includes an annual multi-day/multi-venue festival, youth-oriented educational initiatives and year round screening opportunities for QWFF filmmakers, past and present. The festival screens challenging films representative of quality independent cinema from around the world and around the corner. We are especially interested in maverick filmmakers of any sex, orientation, ethnicity, country, region with a point of view and we don’t want you to back off. Take a stand and show us something we have never seen before.
Filmmakers can enter any festival in the world, so when an artist choose to submit their work to us, we don’t take it lightly. We make sure that the selected filmmakers have time with their audiences and we build community around the films. A great deal of this festival is about bringing people together. That is why each block is curated and hosted by a QWFF Festival Associate and if a filmmaker is present, there is a Q & A to encourage dialogue.
