Q&A and reception with Filmmaker Steve Taub
Long Island Cares Food Collection Night

An illuminating and moving new documentary explores the positive influence of the arts in our community by focusing on the unique contributions of Vic Skolnick, Cinema Arts Centre co-founder, and Michael Rothbard, co-founder of Inter-Media Arts Center. These two men were pioneers in bringing the wide range of cultural experiences that city dwellers take for granted to suburban audiences. Their passions forever altered and improved our cultural landscape, and created communities that transformed people's lives.
 
Local Emmy nominated filmmaker Steven Taub directs a touching documentary that features lively interviews with IMAC Co-Founder Kathie Bodily, CAC Co-Founder Charlotte Sky, filmmaker/actor Ed Burns, musician David Bromberg, social activist/poet Sandy Chapin, NPR radio station’s WFUV John Platt and many others. A stirring musical soundtrack by stellar and accomplished local musicians accompanies the film’s compelling storytelling and recollections.
