TV Host Cognac Wellerlane poses on the red carpet at the Long Island Film Expo
Independent filmmakers, actors and VIP guests attended the 18th Annual LIIFE – Long Island International Film Expo from July 8 – 16, 2015 at the Bellmore Movies. This year’s festival included over a hundred short and feature-length independent films from all over the world. Several panels were held during the LIIFE – Long Island International Film Expo – topics include: distribution, scriptwriting, legal music and a filmmaker panel/breakfast.
Once the winners of the LIIFE – Long Island International Film Expo are chosen (a combination of audience ballot and judging committee), they are honored at the Closing Night Party and Awards Ceremony, where they receive trophies and winners’ prizes (which vary from cash prizes, editing time, DVDs, free rentals of lights, etc.). The Closing Party and Awards Ceremony was held on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at the Filmmakers Lounge, directly West of the Bellmore Movies.
This year the Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Stage, TV and Film Actor John Amos who is best known for his TV character, James Evans, Sr. on the 1970s television series “Good Times.” During the award ceremony I interviewed Mr. Amos on the red carpet.
