Tag: Gold Coast International Film Festival
Huntington's Cinema Arts Centre regularly hosts special events and screenings of foreign & independent movies, as opposed to commercial blockbusters. The venue's director of publicity, Raj Tawney, is dedicated to celebrating Hollywood's 'Golden Age' of film by honoring past classics and creating programs that feature legendary cinematic greats, such as legendary Hollywood agent Budd Burton Moss, as well as present-day festivals, such as the Gold Coast International Film Festival. Old and new film fans can therefore share "a reel experience" and enjoy the art of truly great filmmaking, together.

From the Hamptons to the Gold Coast, cinemaphiles can go film fest hopping across the Island throughout the summer and into the fall. Some have already concluded so far this year, such as the LI LGBT film fest that wrapped up last month. And the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington regularly hosts mini-film fests of its own. Here are six upcoming annual film festivals on Long Island
