We are set to run at the Museum of the Moving Image and Kaufman Astoria Studios April 16 – 28, 2024 for both our loyal audience and new guests.

With our signature thematic curation, we create blocks of films focused on themes that are of interest to our audience including but not limited to:

  • Immigration and Immigrants rights
  • The environment
  • Strong documentaries about everything and anything
  • Relationships: twisted and otherwise
  • Horror AND Dance AND Animation (extra points for an animated horrific dance film)
  • Conflict Resolution and Social Justice
  • Experimental work, Music Videos, Web Series Pilots
  • Freedom of Expression
  • Stories of Hope and Resilience
  • The women in our lives


Queens World designates awards in every category to recognize ‘Outstanding Achievements’. When there is work that deserves special attention, it will be awarded a Jury Prize to recognize that filmmaker’s accomplishment. There is also an InkTip prize package for three film festival participants. Winners will receive a 4-month InkTip Pro Membership. As an InkTip Pro Member, thousands of filmmakers can find and read your scripts, and you’ll be able to pitch directly to production companies every week. Every InkTip producer has been vetted via resume and references and demonstrated the ability to get movies made. With over 3,000 options and 400 movies made, InkTip is the place for independent film.

Show us what you see, tell us what you know, share what you have experienced! If your work is selected, we will do everything we can to ensure your screening is well attended by an audience interested and engaged in the themes you are working with.

We will see you in Queens.P.S. BRING IT!
