Now in its third year, the Gold Coast International Film Festival, taking place Oct 21-27, 2013 throughout the town of North Hempstead, will turn Long Island into “Laugh Island” and spotlight Comedy with a program of films and events loaded with legendary comedians, writers and actors.

The theme carries over to this year’s opening night annual Benefit Gala honoree, Susie Essman, “the hysterically inappropriate” star of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” who will be the recipient of the Artist of Distinction, Gold Coast International Film Festival Executive Director Regina Gil said during the press announcement of the festival line-up.

Susie Essman is featured in one of the festival films, “The Business of Comedy,” a documentary co-produced by comedian Jeffrey Gurian about what it’s like to make a living in comedy. It also stars Robert Klein, George Wallace, Tom Dreesen, Shecky Greene, Judy Carter, and comedy club owners Budd Friedman, Rick Newman, Richie Tienken and LA Comedy Store manager Tommy Morrie. The screening is followed by one of the free events offered during the festival, a Q&A with Jeffrey Gurian, Richie Tienken, Gary Licker and Scott Sobel and a signing with Gurian for his new book, “Make ‘Em Laugh.” (Soundview Cinema, Port Washington, Sat. Oct 26, at 5 pm).

This “Laugh Island” theme is also represented by the screening of “Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor”, a documentary that features five severely wounded Iraq/Afghanistan veterans who are given the opportunity to explore their experiences through the healing power of humor as they work with professional comedy writers and A-List comedias including Zach Galifianakis, Lewis Black, Bob Saget and BJ. Novak, who help them write and perform stand-up comedy routines. The screening features a Q&A with Joe Kashow and Bobby Henline, two of the Comedy Warriors featured in the film.

A live event, “Set List! Stand-Up Without a Net,” is a chance to see top comedians taking on bizarre, outrageous and ridiculous topics as the audience follows along on the screen behind the performer. The show is created by Paul (The Aristocrats) Provenza and his partner Troy Conrad. is being presented Friday, Oct 25, 8 pm at the Gold Coast Arts Center (formerly known as the Great Neck Arts Center).

The most remarkable aspect of the GCIFF – aside from being able to see top-quality films before they are in wide distribution and in our own neighborhood – is the opportunity that most of them afford to hear from principles associated with the film – directors, producers, screenwriters, actors.

Famed actor Paul Sorvino is coming in from Los Angeles to be on hand for a Q&A following the screening of his new film, “How Sweet it Is,” a musical comedy he stars in with Joe Piscopo. Sorvino plays an alcoholic theater owner needs to put together a successful musical in order to pay off his mob debt, but problems arise when the wise guys want to cast their friends in the production (Tuesday 10/22, 7:30pm, Soundview)

Special Events, Panels, Workshops

One of the most wonderful aspects of the Gold Coast International Film Festival are the events, panels and workshops (many free) which bring together major film makers and creative experts.

A major event, which is free,” A Conversation with Jay McInerney,” features the renowned writer of “Bright Lights, Big City,” in an intimate onstage discussion looking ack at the making of the film version of his novel (Sat. Oct. 26, 1:30 pm at Port Washington Library).

“A Star is Born: A Prudent Parent’s guide to Getting Your Kid in Show Business” is likely to be hugely popular. This free event let’s you spend an afternoon with the legendary entertainment attorney Steven Beer (he helped launch Britney Spears) and Broadway Star and Long Island native Nikki Blonsky of “Hairspray” fame (Sun, Oct 27, noon, at the Gold Coast Arts Center).

Another important panel is being presented in conjunction with a life-affirming film, “The Genius of Marian,” which follows the filmmaker’s mother who at age 61 is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and follows her as she works on a book celebrating the life of her own mother, artist Marian Steele. A panel that follows the film features filmmaker Luke White and North Shore-LIJ Health System experts who specialize in Geriatrics, Behavioral Health and Alzheimer’s research. The program is sponsored by NSLIJ’s Katz Institute for Women’s Health (Mon, Oct. 21, 6:30 pm at the Soundview, Port Washington).

A program that will be of particular interest: Ambassador Yehuda Avner will answer questions and sign his best-selling book after the Long Island premiere of “The Prime Ministers,” a documentary based on his book which explores six decades of Israel’s history and brings to life never-before told stories about Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin and Shimon Peres .A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit The Simon Wiesenthal Center (Sun, Oct 27, 4 pm, Bowtie Great Neck Cinema).

Another that is certainly to generate interest is “Dancing in Jaffa,” an inspiring documentary about how famed ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine teaches ballroom dance to pairs of 11-year old Palestinian Israelis and Jews, changing their perspective, will feature an opportunity to talk with Dulaine (Sun. Oct 27, 1 pm, Bow Tie Great Neck).

The festival features more than 50 films which are selected from hundreds that are screened by the curators (in other festivals, the filmmakers pay an entrance fee to be included).

The Gold Coast International Film Festival has been drawing filmgoers from all over Long Island and from Manhattan (most of the movie theaters and venues are within walking distance of the Long Island Railroad Stations in Great Neck, Manhasset and Port Washington).

Tickets can be purchased in individual segments (12 general; $10/seniors and students, visit goldcoastfilmfestival.org or call 516-829-2570 for special event pricing).

Passes include the VIP All Access Pass, $275, which provides access to all screenings, panels, parties and special events (excluding the Opening Night Benefit Gala); and a 6-PackFlex Pass, $60, which gives you six film tickets for the price of five, which can be used in any combination.

Clearview Cinemas has twitter contest to give away tickets to first-ever Gold Coast International Film Festival on Long Island

May 19, 2011
Chasing Madoff

The New York premiere of "Chasing Madoff" promises to be one of the hot-tickets at the first-ever Gold Coast International Film Festival. The documentary chronicles the compelling story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigators' ten-year struggle to expose the harrowing truth of Bernard Madoff's Ponzi scheme that wreaked financial havoc on so many in this community.

Clearview Cinemas is currently holding a giveaway on its Twitter page to win tickets to the first-ever Gold Coast International Film Festival, to be held June 1-5 in Great Neck, Long Island!  Movies will be screened at Clearview Cinemas in Great Neck, Manhasset, Roslyn, New Hyde Park/Herricks and Port Washington.  All Twitter followers have to do to enter is tell what their favorite movie is of all time!  You can follow at: http://www.twitter.com/clearviewcinema.  To learn more about the Gold Coast International Film Festival, and what films will be screened, check out the official site: http://goldcoastfilmfestival.org.

Between June 1-5, some 25,000 people are expected in the various venues in the town of North Hempstead to experience an extraordinary program of some 40 films including premieres plus special events such as “Conversations With…,” intimate Q&As with notable filmmakers and “tastemakers”; Insider Industry Panels highlighting various aspects of the  film and media industries; and special screenings and workshops incorporated into the Great Neck Arts Center’s arts in education outreach program.

Bruce Dern is one of those major film personalities who will give the festival its cachet. He is the notable filmmaker/film personality who will be showcased at this inaugural festival in what will be an annual kickoff Tribute event. Dern, who coincidentally and most appropriately was Tom Buchanan in the 1973 remake of F Scott Fitzgerald’s “Great Gatsby”, is coming in from Los Angeles to spend an evening at Landmark at Main in Port Washington, to discuss his career and meet and greet at a reception that will follow, where he will celebrate his birthday and the receipt of the festival’s first Legend award.

The President  of Israel’s Academy of Motion Pictures & Sciences (the equivalent of our Oscars)  is also flying in to be part of a panel, so people can talk to him about how and why the film industry in Israel has become so big and important.

An event oriented around Indian film making sold out in an instant. (Tickets to festival events just went on sale May 16).

During the course of the festival, there will be films from Israel, China, Iran, India, France, England, as well as the United States, with a couple of New York premieres.

There will even be films with a Great Neck connection as well, including the New York premiere of “Chasing Madoff,” which promises to be one of the hot-tickets. Directed by Jeff Prosserman (USA), “Chasing Madoff” is a documentary chronicling the compelling story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigators’ ten-year struggle to expose the harrowing truth of Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme that wreaked financial havoc on so many in our own community.

The festival is designed to be accessible, as well, both in the “price points” of tickets, in venues and in programming.

There will be screenings morning to night at Clearview Cinemas (a sponsor) in Great Neck, Manhasset, Port Washington, Roslyn, Herricks, and New Hyde Park. You can purchase a ticket for as little as $15 to one of the movies or panels, or purchase one of three packages: a Patron Gold Pass, at $250, provides access to all Festival screenings on a space-available basis and 25% discount on Festival merchandise; a Premier Gold Pass, at $500, provides access to all Festival screenings and two special events such as filmmaker panels and after-parties (you have to RSVP), Festival tote bag and 25% discount on merchandise; and VIP Gold Pass, at $1000, gets you reserved seating at select screenings, plus parties, panels, and special events, festival T-shirt and tote bag and discount on merchandise. Senior citizens get a discount, too.

The Long Island Railroad, one of the festival sponsors, is enabling patrons to get a  discount on the film tickets by showing their railroad tickets.

This is really a community wide event, with the town and local communities linking up their own events, making the festival, well, more festive.

The Village of Great Neck Plaza, where the Great Neck Arts Center is located, is holding its annual Great Neck Plaza Restaurant Week May 29-June 5 (visit www.shopgreatneck.com),  and scheduled its wonderfully festive Promenade Night on Middle Neck Road for June 2.
