THE FILMMAKERS CONNECTION
Happy to see that one of our LIIFE 2010 winners, “The Last Day of Summer,” is playing in NYC. If you didn't catch it at LIIFE, come to NYC! “Last Day of Summer” is playing at the AMC on 42ns St. NYC starting Sept. 17th. Congratulations to Kevin Arbouet and Larry Strong.
Also pleased to see that a winner from the year before, Anthony Tarsitano’s film, “Calling It Quits,” is now available for sale. If anyone is interested, you can find info at: http://www.callingitquitsmovie.com/cmd.php?af=1225762
LIIFE will be part of the Long Island Fringe Festival at the Tilles Center (CW Post Campus in Greenvale) on Saturday and Sunday, September 25 and 26. The screenings will be held in the Humanities Bldg (there will be people there to direct you where to go). Come and meet the filmmakers – almost all, if not all, will be there! Many of them have spoken at our filmmakers connection meetings before (I’ve included their name if they have/will be). Bring your LIFTF membership card for discount.
