Description: This festival returns to screen 104 short films from around the world and around the corner. Films will also be screened at 3 locations, including the Jackson Cinema (Elmhurst) the Renaissance Charter School (Jackson Heights) and the Secret Theatre (LIC). Queens is the most ethnically diverse community in the world, with two major airports serving to connect New York City and the global community. The 3rd Annual Queens World Film Festival appreciates this diversity by promoting both local and international filmmakers positioning Queens as a destination for both filmmakers and film lovers.
