Many Dominicans of Haitian descent are facing harsh times since the conservative wing is pushing for a law which would have serious consequences for them: Denationalisation and deportation to Haiti. Julio and Alejandro are born and raised in the Dominican Republic, they speak Dominican Spanish, they love the Dominican culture, they feel like Dominicans. Yet they are in danger of being expelled to Haiti, a country they have never seen, whose language they don’t speak, whose culture they don’t know. Documentary 01:22:00 Dominican Republic

Our MISSION is to discover, promote and give venue to independent filmmakers, not just from the greater New York area, but from other regions of America and abroad.
For 36 years, the Long Island Film Festival has presented high quality film programs and has made a major contribution to the Long Island community by promoting films that are entertaining, educational, thought provoking and enhance the general public's understanding of cinema culture and the humanities.
The Long Island Film Festival is the Longest Running International Film Festival on Long island.
During those 36 years, we have witnessed filmmaking transform itself from a strictly film medium to a highly technological global digital art form with sophisticated software operating on specially configured computers. As a result, there are more filmmakers attempting to break into the film industry. It is those new filmmakers that the Long Island Film Festival seeks to discover.
Our World Lens series focuses on foreign Indie filmmakers that are producing films that are pieces of their culture and set in economic, social, environmental, and political spheres. It is the commitment of the Long Island Film Festival to promote these films and support independent filmmakers around the world.
