NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning Oct 21st, 2013 Douglas Elliman Real Estate will once again sponsor the Gold Coast International Film Festival's week long celebration of exceptional local filmmakers. Located in the Town of North Hempstead, the Gold Coast International Film Festival was founded with the purpose of establishing a home on Long Island to showcase the work of extraordinary artists and provide the public with an insider's view of the film industry.
During the seven-day festival, community residents, visitors, members of the business and film communities, public officials, students and academics will join in celebration of the influence cinema has had on the historic towns and villages of Long Island's Gold Coast.
A sponsor of the festival from the very beginning, Dorothy Herman, President & CEO of Douglas Elliman Real Estate stated, "It is truly an honor to be a part of such an amazing community event. Not only does it remind us of the historical significance the Gold Coast of Long Island possesses, but it also provides so many enormously talented filmmakers with an opportunity to share their art." Ann Conroy, President of the Long Island Division shared Herman's sentiments, "We have been proud sponsors of the Gold Coast Film Festival since its inception, and couldn't be prouder to be part of the philanthropic works of the Great Neck Arts Center, soon to be called the Gold Coast Arts Center, using proceeds from the Festival, to bring all the arts and art education to the underserved in the community."
The Gold Coast International Film Festival produced by the Great Neck Arts Center, an organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the arts through education, exhibition, performance and outreach, will run from October 21st to October 27th, 2013.
