The Long Island Film/TV Foundation and the Nassau County Film Commission are proud to host the Long Island International Film Expo. Past festivals have screened from 50 - 155 short and feature-length independent films from all over the globe during this weeklong film festival. Several panels are held during the first weekend of the Long Island International Film Expo – usually consisting of a distribution panel, a scriptwriting panel, legal music panel and a filmmaker panel and breakfast.
The Long Island International Film Expo is a competitive festival. Some of the categories awarded may include: Best Director, Best Story, Best Feature Film (in 35 mm, 16 mm and Video), Best Short Film (in 35 mm, 16 mm and Video), Best Long Island Film, Best Student Film, Best Animation, Best Foreign Film and others. There will be several technical categories judged before the film festival by special entry. Technical categories will include: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Lighting and possibly others.
Once the winners of the Long Island International Film Expo are chosen by a combination of audience ballot and judging committee, they are honored at the Long Island International Film Expo Closing Night Party and Awards Ceremony, where they receive their trophies and winners' prizes (which vary every year from free editing time, DVDs, free rentals of lights, etc.)
