#InTheLoop | The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema to return for a second year
The second annual Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema is set to take place from Aug. 3 through Aug. 12, and the organizers are seeking film submissions, sponsors, and advertisers.
Last year’s inaugural festival attracted about 3,000 attendees who watched 157 independent films from around the world at such venues as the Queens Museum and outdoors in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. They enjoyed 10 days of premieres, parties, panels, and networking.
The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema was founded by three local independent filmmakers who simply love the moving image. Last year’s activities got coverage from media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, Time Out NY, and NY1 News.
