Astoria Film Festival Education & Outreach

Astoria Film Festival in NYC is a 501c3 organization and an official NYC DOE VENDOR.

 

Each year, we produce a main festival and a Youth Festival, teach filmmaking workshops to ages 8-adult in schools, after schools, and for the local community, organize a Career Fair, provide virtual and in-person internships for HS and college students interested in Media/Film/TV Careers, and select and train a group of youth to be our Film Fellows, who then work on film and video production projects with us and with various industry professionals and local businesses.  

We are very much a hybrid organization, as committed to education and community as we are to independent filmmaking and storytelling.
