Uniting movie lovers across NYC's largest cinema desert, Rockaway Film Festival is a moving-image celebration that strives for inclusion and enrichment through meaningful events. Like the peninsula itself, the festival represents a broad spectrum of stories, and aims to captivate and connect all members of our vibrant community.
The festival is a 501c3 non-profit founded in 2018 by Sam Fleischner, Courtney Muller, and Greg Stewart.
Rockaway Film Festival would like to thank VBX™~Vernam Basin Terminal for generously hosting us at the Arverne Cinema in addition to BBX™~Barbadoes Basin Terminal for contributing to such.
Rockaway Film Festival is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. It is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional support provided by FRANC and the Fund for the City of New York.
