#InTheLoop | The Astoria Film Festival Runs Oct. 1 to Oct. 31
BY QEDC It's In Queens
What can we say? The borough looks great in pictures!
The fourth annual AFF will run from Friday, Oct. 1, to Sunday, Oct. 31. More than 90 works — including web series and podcasts — by filmmakers from Queens and around the world will show at the Zukor Theater at Kaufman Astoria Studios, 34-12 36th St., and the Heart of Gold Bar, 37-14 31st Ave., which has a backyard theater.
Panel discussions, workshops on such topics as storytelling, stunts, and animation, and an awards ceremony are also in the mix.
Tickets range from $5 to $20 with a $125 all-access pass, and there are in-person and online options.
True to its neighborhood, AFF has a diverse lineup that includes pieces by graduates of AFF’s Film Fellow Program, women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, and disabled creators, including a comedy produced by a deaf cast.
