This year, to celebrate LIIFE's 20th Anniversary, we are inviting prominent filmmakers, actors, producers, and other film enthusiasts to create a short, congratulatory video!
Once all of the videos are sent, they will be compiled and used for our Social Media promotional campaign, encouraging our community to support #20yearsofliife.
The video can be a simple "Happy Birthday," "Congratulations," or even a few minutes discussing a personal experience with LIIFE and/or the Long Island film industry. Go on for as long as you need, share your support, and have fun!
Already created your video? Great! You can submit it to LIIFE by emailing your video to firstname.lastname@example.org
The annual Long Island International Film Expo is the premiere filmmaker event on Long Island, displaying short and feature-length films of every genre. The Long Island International Film Expo offers networking opportunities, a 350 seat historic theater, press and media opportunities, a convenient filmmakers lounge, and several discussion panels with topics ranging from distribution to scriptwriting, legal music, and a filmmaker panel.
Named “One of the Top 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” by MovieMaker Magazine, the Long Island International Film Expo is one of Long Island’s most prestigious film festivals, screening approximately 150 independent films during its weeklong run. Last year, many celebrity guests attended the event, including Actor/Activist Ed Asner (Mary Tyler Moore, UP!), who was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the event, Oscar nominated actress Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull), Actor Kevin Brown (30 Rock), American Idol's Robbie Rosen, Ilene Kristen (One Life to Live), Phyllis Somerville (Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Guiding Light), Larry Romano (King of Queens), and more! Other notable past LIIFE attendees also include Steve Buscemi, Ed Burns, Steve Guttenberg, and Ralph Macchio.
