Groups announce Furman Film Series docket

North Hempstead Town and the Great Neck Arts Center have announced the 2013 Furman Film Series, a round of screenings followed by discussions with filmmakers.

The center recently partnered with the Town of North Hempstead, and the series is marketed as a lead-in to the group’s marquis event, the Gold Coast International Film Festival, which is held in October.

In May, the town board approved an additional $150,000 for the center, amending a pact for the town to acquire it, bringing more arts programming.
