Great Neck, NY - July 30, 2014 - From November 3-9, 2014 the Gold Coast Arts Center in collaboration with the Town of North Hempstead will present the 4th annual Gold Coast International Film Festival (GCIFF), and everyone’s invited—again—to join us for fantastic films, parties, panels, and fanfare!
 
The feature films at the Festival are curated and the category is not open to individual submissions; however there is still room for the very best in short films to make the cut and submissions are being accepted at the website at goldcoastfilmfestival.org through the online platform Film Freeway.
 
Short film awards include both a jury award and an audience award, and are accompanied by prizes, which may include rental equipment, post-production services, etc. The deadline for submissions is August 1 (there is also a late deadline of September 26).
 
The festival has brought the latest Hollywood hits and Indie favorites to the Gold Coast of Long Island over the past several years, and add A-list celebrities and unforgettable events to the mix and its easy to see why GCIFF has become the “go to” Festival for film buffs (it is also the last major film festival on the East Coast before Awards season).
 
Last year, the Festival honored legendary actor, Paul Sorvino (GoodFellas, Bulworth, The Cooler) with a Lifetime Achievement Award during their Annual Benefit Gala. The Gala also honored Susie Essman, (co-star of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm) with the Artist of Distinction Award for Comedy. From across the “pond” young British actress Bonnie Wright (of the Harry Potter film series), Melanie Lynsky (2 ½ Men, Ever After) and Emmy Nominated Actor, Jason Ritter (Parenthood) among others also attended last year's festivities.
 
GCIFF presents sensational events to SRO audiences year-round. Some of the past highlights include: an exclusive pre-release screening of The Great Gatsby with Baz Luhrmann, plus screenings and events with such notable names as Edward Burns, Brian Dennehy, Phil Donahue, Isabella Rossellini, Bill Plympton, Bruce Dern, Joan Allen, Gabriel Byrne, Celeste Holm, Eli Wallach, Robert Klein, Nelson DeMille, Francis Ford Coppola, Eli Wallach, Anne Jackson, Alan King and Kelli O’Hara to name a few.
