Turning nine in 2019, QWFF includes an annual multi day/multi venue festival, youth-oriented educational initiatives and year round screening opportunities for QWFF filmmakers, past and present. The festival is programmed in thematic blocks with evocative titles, and each program is followed by a post-screening dialogue to engage audiences from the demographically diverse communities that comprise the borough of Queens. Each year the festival has a very robust submission session, with films coming from all over the globe, 63 nations to date, including Cuba, Franc, Spain, Serbia, Korea, Bangladesh, China, Italy, the Ukraine, Iran, Scotland, Belgium, Finland and the UK to name just a few.

In every year’s festival there are tender films, heartbreaking films, and several works that are extremely provocative, maybe even, disturbing and the selections tie us into conversations people are having around the world via the real stars of the festival: THE FILMS. It’s about surrendering to the films, without looking for familiar names, titles, scores. It’s about creating the right context for personal, intimate films grouped together for a cinematic experience you will not get anywhere else on the planet.

The 9th Annual Queens World Film Festival returns to the Museum of the Moving Image in both the Redstone Theatre and the Bartos Screening Room as well as the historic Zukor Theatre at the Kaufman Astoria Studios located right next door for 11 days of exciting indie films - March 21 - 31, 2019. Strategically placed between the two venues is the fabled Astor Room with incredible food and special discounts just for QWFF participants and attendees. The festival village is located in the Astoria Arts District which is subway close and easy to find via foot or in your car (Yes, there is street and metered parking!)

Cash prizes made possible by the Adam & Amber Tarshis Foundation, will be given in each category. The AFF prefers short films and may only select at the most two feature films. The AFF strives to screen films that explore any aspect of animal welfare, animal rights, the human/animal bond or programs demonstrating ways to improve the lives of animals. The films screened at the AFF inspire people to take action to save lives and end suffering.

During the AFF, speakers, filmmakers, awards and even the food, are intended to inspire film-goers to become active in improving the lives of animals who continue to face huge odds on so many fronts.

​To ensure a balance of films that entertain as well as educate, the AFF also screens funny, warm-hearted and joyful films.

During the festival, kindness towards animals will be evident in the food and beverages served, and the products made available to audiences, filmmakers, and other participants.

Filmmakers whose films are featured in the festival will be our guests at a special event the night before the festival.

Fostering global community through Earthminded film and art with clean energy and zero waste goals.

Our goal, first and foremost, is to honor the Earth in each step of the process. The Earth Day Film Festival uses only renewable energy to power screenings, partners with organizations with integrity, and facilitates grassroots screenings around the world that are free and open to the public. We connect passionate filmmakers with inspired audiences. We are merely amplifiers of your dynamic messages of global community, environmental action, and peace.

Films capture images and stories that have the capacity to inspire action. Art is a voice for social change and a potent way to convey ideas and experiences. Now more than ever, it is necessary to share global stories, with global audiences. Looking to create a global movement rather than a traditional film festival, The Earth Day Film Festival is open to the world: our curated films are screened in cities around the world on Earth Day. Find out how you can host your own screening at: www.earthdayfilmfest.org

The films and art we share reflect a diverse earthly experience. We support all filmmakers’ interpretations; give us your earthly vision however you see it.

The hands and hearts behind The Earth Day Film Festival are a group of artists, activists, optimists, and earth-loving souls. We have joined together to nourish this festival as our artistic contribution to the environmental movement. We are partnered with organizations such as Bioneers, The Biomimicry institute, and Arcadia Power.

We recognize that the work of creating a healthier planet will require a collaborative effort. To cultivate and activate our community, The Earth Day Film Festival hosts a 3-day film and art festival in Chico California, March 1-3 2019.

Awards & Prizes
The Earth Day Film Festival honors selected films with awards such as "Best Cinematography", "Best Editing" and "Best Sound". In addition, The Earth Day Film Festival has several unique, original awards:

"The Earth's Choice Award":
The winning film is made with the Earth in mind- from conception to final film. Consideration is given to energy usage, waste, and environmental impact. The final message is typically feminine in tone, not a direct way of speaking but one that is nurturing and loving as is Mother Earth. The recipient of this award is given temporary custody of the "Earth's Choice" custom trophy with their name engraved below previous recipient. The winner of this award receives an $888 cash award to propagate future Earth-minded work.

"The Activist Award":
This award honors filmmakers who are using their art to affect change in the world. The winning film illuminates unjust or repressive systems and calls for action. The filmmakers tactics, including their partnerships, methods and post-production journey are taken into consideration for this award.

"The New Paradigm Award":
The recipient of this award answers the question: 'what's next?'. After activism draws attention to areas in need of change, a new paradigm is needed to exemplify a more harmonious and healthier relationship with Earth. The selected film has a tone of nurturance and hope.

The Earth Day Film Festival is organized by filmmakers, who honor the effort required to give birth to a film. Selected filmmakers receive thoughtful gift bags from our sponsors and two VIP passes to the Festival.

After the success of the first 2 editions, IBIZACINEFEST broadens horizons with the same initial perspective: Get closer to the independent public cinema, unpublished in Ibiza and an author who will not find it in the conventional commercial halls.
With this spirit we try to educate and bring the viewer closer to this cinema of quality.
As a Modern Festival, it tries to create a structure that allows the filmmaker to disseminate and even distribute the enrolled films and the viewer to enter and approach this world through workshops, film-making and other activities, also for teenagers. And to professionals, offer activities of interest to them through the Professional Days.
For filmmakers of the island and the Balearic Islands it must be a platform for support and motivation for their work.
Its preselection format first on our website gives rise to the fact that many works are known and popular.
The institutional support at the Festival is total:
-Department of Culture of the City Council of Ibiza.
