This is what it takes for under-represented youth to obtain jobs in media careers, and that's what Astoria Film Festival is dedicated to bringing to the NYC Community.

Astoria Film Festival Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization and an official NYC DOE VENDOR.  We bring filmmaking workshops, film events, and film production services to the NYC Community.  We also connect our younger students to our older students and to our festival filmmakers and industry professionals who work with us, thus creating a multi-generational, diverse, local filmmaking community and network.

Astoria Film Festival is especially focused on supporting groups historically-ignored in society - Disabled people, women, FLI (First-Gen/Low-Income/Immigrants), BBIA (Black/Brown/Indigenous/Asian), women, LGBTQIA+ people.
