Point Lookout Film Festival Returns for Sixth Season
The Point Lookout Film Festival enjoyed its sixth season at its home at Point Lookout’s J.A. Heneghan’s Tavern on April 6.
Started in 2018 by filmmaker-organizers of several short film festivals in the New York and New Jersey area, the festival thrives on being an outlet for filmmakers from the greater Long Island area, as well as surrounding areas, to show the fruits of their labors.
The festival organizers view the unique venue as the perfect vehicle to provide a valuable networking opportunity for filmmakers in a welcoming setting. Quite often at similar venues, relationships have been forged, leading to projects that would ultimately be shown in later seasons of the same festival.
Annual awards at the festival include Best Local Short, Best Ensemble, uniquely titled certificate awards, and even awards for student films, in addition to the usual awards you’d see at most festivals.
