Weather Alert  

LIGHT SNOW AND SPOTTY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS EVENING As temperatures slowly rise this evening, light snow should quickly change over to rain across Long Island, New York City and the suburbs just north and west, and across coastal and southeastern Connecticut, with at least a coating of accumulation, and as much as an inch farther away from the coast. As precipitation mixes with and changes to rain, road temperatures in these areas may still be below freezing even as air temperatures slowly rise to the mid and upper 30s, and a light glaze of ice may be possible on untreated surfaces. So plan on slippery conditions this evening even as temperatures slowly rise.

Film festivals are a vital part of the movie industry and draw millions of celebrities and other film lovers all over the country and the world to see what's new in the movies . Some of the most famous festivals take place in Cannes, France, Tribeca and the Sundance in Utah. 

We are fortunate to have many right here on Long Island.  Many of the films star, were written by, produced by, or were directed by Long Islanders. And don't be surprised if you recognize some Island landmarks in these movies.

Film festivals showcase high-quality films during a celebration of new and established filmmakers and their new or rare films. Bringing new and rare feature-length films, documentaries, animation, and shorts, some festivals also includes filmmaker panels and arts presentations to unique and historic venues.  There are film festivals for all movie tastes.  Libraries also partake in their own film festivals.

Are you an aspiring filmmaker?  These festivals are always looking for films to include. Is the latest young director the next Scorsese, Spielberg or Lucas? Applications are available on their web sites.

Grab a tub of popcorn and get ready to enjoy these local film festivals.
