RIIFF EXPO'D 2016
It will be a really busy week as we participate in business expos in Newport, RI and New York City this March. The Newport Expo usually draws over a 1,000 participants and the LGBT Expo at the Javit's Center in New York draws over 36,000 folks. Both events are fun adventures and we plan on introducing the 2016 (and 20th Anniversary) Poster design by Michael Chevalier of Linchpin. Yep, it's been 20 years!
Our team in 2015 at the Jacob Javit's Center in Manhattan for the Annual LGBT Expo where we host the Film with our friends from the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (http://www.liglff.org). Each year, the Festivals bring together a unique team of collaborators who help curate the Lounge, making for an entertaining and enlightening afternoon. From cutting edge new work, filmmaker interviews, live musical performances, fashion, comedy, dance and even a “You Be the Judge” program where you can select the films that will play at the Festivals, the Video Lounge has
become an entertainment mainstay of the Expo.
After the Expo, our team headed to lower Manhattan to the Cozy Dinner for a relaxing meal and a bit of R&R. Great sports all: Timothy Haggerty our Technical Director; Carol Conley (our food guide) from the RI Film and Television Office; Lawrence J. Andrade, Flickers Board; and Shawn Quirk our Program Director holding a dessert for his wife, Katie (who was good enough to let him come with us to play in the Big Apple.)
