March 25th, 2018: Queens World Film Festival
Arriving for the opening ceremony of The Queens World Film Festival held at the Museum for the Moving Image located in Queen – of course.
Meeting Melvin Van Peebles at the festival opening.
NYC Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer made a speech. I got myself smack in the middle despite my fears.
I got to be on the stage with all the film makers. Pretty exciting.
Susan Seidelman with Melvin Van Peebles at the opening ceremony. I love her films!
The 4 Jewish themed films that were part of the festival were shown at a Church. Only in New York would this happen. Peter McWhinney played guitar while the audience arrived.
Nice coverage of the festival in the paper.
