The winning films of the Second Annual Young Filmmakers Program of the Gold Coast International Film Festival will be screened at noon on Sunday, Nov. 13, at the Soundview Cinema, 7 Soundview Marketplace, Port Washington.
Thirteen films were chosen from more than 100 submissions, and they include three films by Long Island students — “bELIeve” by Charlie Ehrman of Huntington High School, about Eli Mollineaux, a fellow student with a rare disease who died last month; “My First Camera” by Aidan Cronin of Commack High School, a stop-motion piece; and “Life Is but a Dream,” by Matthew Savage and Kyle Sheridan of North Shore High School in Glen Head, which follows a man who encounters pirates, sea monsters and flamingos while trying to reach his dream.
Films range from two to five minutes each, and the screening will take about an hour. Young filmmakers will be on hand to answer questions, says Caroline Sorokoff, Film Festival director. This is the only screening of these films.
Admission is free but seats must be reserved in advance at goldcoastfilmfestival.org.
