Mangano and the Long Island International Film Expo (LIIFE) are proud to announce a private screening of Ralph Macchio’s new short film, Across Grace Alley, on Sunday, August 10th  at 12 noon. As one of the top 10 must see summer film festivals in the United States, the 17th Annual Long Island Film Expo came to a wrap last week; residents and fans are invited to join Ralph Macchio at a private showing of his newest short film.
“We are proud to have Ralph Macchio screen his new film Across Grace Alley here after his directorial debut, Love Thy Brother, filmed in Nassau County several years ago,” said County Executive Mangano. 
Across Grace Alley is a coming of age story about a young boy struggling with his parents’ divorce. The film stars Ralph Macchio, Ben Hyland, Marsha Mason and Karina Smirnoff. 
As per Ralph Macchio, “Following our east coast premiere screening sellouts at the Hamptons International Film Festival in October and more recently our SRO crowd for the Opening Night at Stony Brook Film Festival in July, I am excited to bring Across Grace Alley to a Nassau County audience. I will be there with one of the stars of the film, Nassau's own, 12 year-old Ben Hyland (Marley & Me, House of Cards, The Strain) to participate in a special talk-back immediately following the screening on August 10th.”
