Image Source: Queens World Film Festival

Come see movies from around the world and around the corner…with buffs from around the world and around the corner. Tonight, the Queens World Film Festival kicks off at Astoria’s Museum of the Moving Image with shorts from Italy, Belgium, Australia, Croatia, Brooklyn and Queens. In total, the six-day extravaganza will exhibit 104 flicks, including ones by 19 locals, along with industry panels, special screening events and popular youth-oriented educational initiatives. Awards will be presented to narratives, documentaries, animation and LGBT films, and the winners will play again at encore screenings on March 10 at LIC’s Secret Theatre. The organizers, spouses Don and Katha Cato, have informed that they chose challenging films that aren’t easily available to moviegoers for this third annual festival.
