Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema at Queens Museum
5 days of independent film and related programs

We are thrilled to be a venue for this year’s Kew Garden Festival of Cinema.
The first and only film festival of its kind held in Kew Gardens, NYC, The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema was founded by three local independent filmmakers with a passion to get movies made. Wanting to expand the reach of artists’ work and recognizing the challenge of the visibility of independent film, their aim is to establish a presence in and spread awareness of cinematic creativity throughout Kew Gardens, Forest Hills, Queens and the neighboring communities.
Join us for an exciting series of documentaries, shorts, web series, music videos and more at the Queens Museum, while supporting the local independent film scene.
Make sure to check out KGFC presents events, a series of free workshops, presentations and talks for anyone interested to venture into and step up their game in the film arts.
All films and programs, with the exception of the outdoor Passport Thursdays event, will be presented inside the Queens Museum theater.
