Socrates Sculpture Park
Long Island City
In its 20th Anniversary year, the Outdoor Cinema international film festival continues to highlight Socrates Sculpture Park as a public community space for enjoyment and celebration of many cultures, and as a local anchor in one of the world’s most diverse places – the borough of Queens, New York. There are more languages spoken in Queens than any other place on Earth, and as such, Socrates’ Outdoor Cinema is distinct for its emphasis on exclusively presenting foreign films, in addition to screenings paired with a pre-movie cultural music / dance performance and cuisine from the film’s country of origin. Outdoor Cinema is curated in partnership and collaboration with two experts in world cinema: Film Forum brings their breadth and depth of film history, focusing on both classic and current critically acclaimed films, while Rooftop Films offers brand new movies to the series, often in their NY or U.S. premieres, with introductions by the film’s directors. The films are presented in their original language with English subtitles.

Founded in 1986, Socrates Sculpture Park is the only site in the New York Metropolitan area specifically dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and exhibit large-scale sculpture and multi-media installations in a unique outdoor environment that encourages strong interaction between artists, artworks and the public. The park’s existence is based on the belief that reclamation, revitalization and creative expression are essential to the survival, humanity and improvement of our urban environment.
