ASTORIA FILM FESTIVAL
Astoria Film Festival Inc in Astoria NY
Astoria Film Festival Inc, in the Kaufman Arts District in Astoria NY, is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
Astoria Film Festival Inc. was begun in 2018 by Nina Fiore EdM, who has a background in TV and digital media production, education research, afterschool education, and developmental psychology. She began the organization while working in an after school program where the children had an interest in learning how to create short films. She created a film festival to find local filmmakers and then connect them with local students interested in film. Older students, especially those from under-represented groups, taught by local filmmakers, would then be recruited to act as mentors and teachers to the younger filmmaking students, thus creating a multi-generational local filmmaking community and network.
We are very much a hybrid organization, as committed to education and community as we are to independent filmmaking.
