City Island truly is - A Slice of NYC Paradise. Nearly a couple of hundred Mussel Suckers and Clam Diggers came out to weather the cold and gathered at Trinity Church to participate in The First Foto and Film Festival.
Kudos to Hyonok Kim, Ron Terner, James Breen, Tommy Breen, Scott Ruderman and all the locals who made last night's event a local success.
Feedback from the crowds was that they enjoyed the five films made by, for and about City Islanders, Ms. Kim, Mr.Turner, and The Breen Brothers, who are gems to this coastal community.
Following the viewing, there was a question and answer period which involved the filmmakers and some of the stars profiled in these videos.
Afterward, some of the attendees called it an exciting and wonderful night as well as praised the participating filmmakers.
Our question was when is the next festival date? Will the festival become a regularly scheduled event and thereby a new opportunity for community engagement? Stay` tuned and we will let you know when we find out.
