The Elmont Chamber of Commerce will host the Elmont Film Festival at Elmont Memorial Library’s theater, 700 Hempstead Tpke., from 1 to 9 p.m. Admission is free.

The festival will feature Long Island International Film Expo award-winning films as well as local filmmakers, who will be at the event for question-and-answer sessions.

This year’s special guest will be Ron Turcotte, the jockey who rode Secretariat to the Triple Crown 40 years ago. A documentary on his life, titled “Secretariat’s Jockey, Ron Turcotte,” will be shown.
