LONG ISLAND CITY — The Queens World Film Festival returns to the borough next month for its third year, screening over 100 independent movies in Astoria, Long Island City, Elmhurst and Jackson Heights.
The six-day festival kicks off March 5 and aims to showcase Queens as a premier destination for filmmakers and film lovers alike, according to organizer Katha Cato.
“Great films don’t just have to be made in Hollywood,” she said. “We have world class facilities here, we have nice hotels, we’ve got tremendous neighborhoods and communities that are starting to blossom with artists.”
The remaining films will be shown over the next five days at Jackson Cinema in Elmhurst, The Secret Theatre in Long Island City and the Renaissance Charter
