LIIFE 2017 & The Dover Group Celebrating the Best Short and Feature-Length Independent Films From Around the World...Right Here in Long Island!

ABOUT

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.

THE DOVER GROUP, LIIFE, AND THE LONG ISLAND COMMUNITY

Long Islanders are known for offering the highest standard of excellence. Whether it be curating the best seafood cuisines, or curating the most talented individuals in the arts, Long Islanders have continuously supported other fellow Long Islanders to be the best they can be. Some of the greatest celebrities, such as Billy Joel, Alec Baldwin, Howard Stern, and 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, genuine hospitality, and our unforgettable history and tradition, the Long Island community will continue to transform itself into a place where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential, and in return, great things can be expected.

As two major, established Long Island staples, LIIFE and The Dover Group have the opportunity to push Long Island to its fullest potential. With that being said, LIIFE would like to offer a sponsorship package to The Dover Group to further connect your businesses with the the international film community, and the Long Island community as a whole.

We would like to offer you the $10,000 Presenting Sponsorship at a discounted rate of $7,500. The early sign-on discount will expire on March 15th. After this date, the full price will be in effect.
