Description

11th Annual First Exposure Student Film Festival
A Program of the Suffolk County Film Commission

Sunday, May 21st, 2:00 pm

Admission is Free – Includes Screening & Reception

Curated by professional filmmakers from the Suffolk County Film Commission, this is an hour-long exhibition of the “best of the best” high school short narrative, documentary, and animated films from the Long Island Media Arts Showcase at Five Towns College in Dix Hills. Hundreds compete, but only a handful make the cut. Hal Hartley (Henry Fool, The Unbelievable Truth), Fred Carpenter (The Blue Lizard), Michael Cuesta (L.I.E., TV’s Homeland), and Alexandra Brodsky (Bittersweet Place) all got inspired by their suburban environment and the films they saw at the Cinema Arts Centre. Perhaps one of these talented students will follow in their footsteps? Past winners have gone on to prestigious college film programs and have been featured at the Hamptons Film Festival.
