On August 4th 2017 The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema, a festival designed to support independent Filmmakers, will be launching its inaugural film festival at the historic Kew Gardens Cinemas in Queens NYC.
The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema is a non-profit organization established to support the development, and help expand the audiences, of independent cinema from around the globe. The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema was founded by three local independent filmmakers with a passion to get movies made, and to have those artistic voices heard. Understanding the struggle in today’s film environment in showcasing independent cinema, their aim is to establish a presence and awareness of cinematic creativity throughout Kew Gardens Queens and the neighboring communities.
For its inaugural year The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema aims to become influential in bringing the community together over a 10 day period consisting of film screenings and other activities related to the movie business. With encouraging Q&A's and industry panels we expect to broaden the appeal of Independent film and promote audience participation.
As a competitive festival, our program will consist of over 100 remarkable short and feature length films from all genres including often overlooked categories such as Documentary, Horror, Comedy, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Animation and Experimental. Each film will then be judged, in their respected categories, by our specially selected panel of industry professionals. Winners in each category will receive a statuette at our Grand Awards Gala on the final night of the festival.
Our Festival will be taking place exclusively in Kew Gardens Queens in NYC, USA. Our venue, THE KEW GARDENS CINEMAS is Queens' only art house theater dedicated solely to playing independent and foreign films. Named one of the top 7 theaters in Queens, the theater was built in the 1930's and it is one of the oldest movie theaters still operating in NYC.
A little known area of NYC, Kew Gardens and its surrounding neighborhoods - Forest Hills, Rego Park, Woodhaven and Glendale - are a major stomping ground for most television shows being shot today in New York. Not only is Kew Gardens known as the neighborhood that raised comedians Rodney Dangerfield and Ray Romano, but just a few minutes away is the recently built Broadway Stages. This area of Queens has now been featured in several blockbuster Hollywood films like The Babysitter, Goodfellas and Spiderman as well as major Network TV shows including- Daredevil, The Good Wife, Blue Bloods, The Get Down, Luke Cage and SNL.
We expect to draw not only artists and filmmakers from around NYC but from all over the world. We are giving the residents of Kew Gardens and its neighboring communities Forest Hills, Rego Park and Woodhaven the opportunity to experience Hollywood in their own backyard.
