LIIFE & Nassau Colesium 2017 Celebrating the Best Short and Feature-Length Independent Films From Around the World


The annual Long Island Film Exposition consists of the premiere filmmaker community on Long Island, displaying short and feature-length films of every genre. The Long Island International Film Expo (a 501 c3 Corporation) 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, LIIFE had many celebrity guests, including Actor/Activist Ed Asner (Mary Tyler Moore, UP!), who won 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.


Long Islanders are known for making great pizza, loving coffee, and, of course, supporting other fellow Long Islanders. Some of the greatest celebrities, such as Billy Joel, Alec Baldwin, Howard Stern, and many, many more have come from Long Island, and have made it big with the support of their community. With a huge emphasis on the arts, education, and living green, the Long Island community has transformed itself into a place where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential, and in return, great things can be expected.

In support of Nassau Coliseum, LIIFE would like to offer a sponsorship package to connect their new venue with the Long Island community, as well as the international film community, to expect great things and to keep pushing Long Island to it's fullest.
