Astoria Film Festival  (AFF) is a 501c3 non-profit organization, with a Board of Directors and a Junior Advisory Board, that supports emerging filmmakers by producing an annual international film festival in Kaufman Astoria Studios’ Zukor Theater, holding monthly filmmaker meetups and workshops, supporting local indie film productions, and producing organizing screenings of films by local emerging filmmakers throughout the year in local Astoria venues. 


AFF proud to be a part of the Kaufman Arts District.


AFF also offers Film Education and Outreach to the local community via Astoria Film Festival Workshops which are available to schools, after schools, community  centers, and to the general public. 


Our programs are designed to equip participants with the tools they need to succeed in film creation and production, to encourage equitable access, opportunities, and resources for traditionally underrepresented communities in film/tv digital media industries, and to promote access and develop pathways for emerging talent, diverse voices, and underrepresented youth to explore careers in the film/tv/digital media.
