For starters the word "Macabre" is pronounced: Ma-Cob.
The "re" is hardly ever heard. What does it mean? 
 
Although it is an adjective meaning: disturbing and horrifying because of involvement with or depiction of death and injury but to horror afienados, the Macabre Faire Film Festival portrays a lighter touch in the sense that, not all of the films screened have been a gore fest. Of course, there isn't anything wrong with adding some gore to your film but, when we all hear the word "Macabre" we remember those hauntingly fascinating films that starred legendary greats such as: Vincent Price & Peter Cushing. Or those fantastic Gothic horrors like those from "Hammer" films. These names in themselves represent what "macabre" means to all of us. The Macabre Faire Film Festival DOES NOT only accept HORROR films but instead they welcome those films that can tap into our fears through what you don't see or hear. Films that fall in the "Dark Drama, Mystery, Suspense, Thriller and Dark Comedy" can also touch upon some elements of fear/horror and so they embrace those as well. Of course, let's not forget those fantasy films or comedies with their horror twists. Truth be told that those exist too and yes, they welcome them. How they could not? Would you have turned down something like "The Evil Dead's: Army of Darkness" which is both a fantasy, a comedy and a horror wrapped into a tight burrito? Well The Macabre Faire Film Festival wouldn't either. So folks, this is what many of the films selected for the Macabre Faire Film Festival offer. 

About the only thing they may have to say "No Thanks" to would be a romantic comedy/drama... unless, there's a monster under the bed during love making or other dark element ingredient that can take the viewer to the other side would they then consider. All submitted films are pre-screened by select judges to ensure the films have followed guidelines and are an overall fit for the festival. Then the films are passed on to another set of judges consisting of filmmakers, film critics and or seasoned actors to identify the Official Selections.

The Long Island Film/TV Foundation is established to stimulate and encourage film and TV production on Long Island. Since film and activities on the Island account for over $140 million dollars in revenues per year, the foundation hopes to invite future projects to our area by working closely with industry executives, financiers, film producers, TV/Cable operators and government officials.

This year the Festival honored Actor Mr. Ed Asner with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his amazing body of work.  His recent project was the film "My Friend Ed."

Ed Asner is one of the most celebrated actors of his generation, delighting audiences of all ages, from The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Lou Grant to Elf and Up. But he's also an all-American activist who refuses to budge on his ideals, no matter what anyone thinks. Beneath the tough skin of this crotchety crusader lies the heart of a true warrior for justice.

Ed Asner  is an American film, television, stage, and voice actor, and a former president of the Screen Actors Guild. He is primarily known for his role as Lou Grant during the 1970s and early 1980s, on both The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its spin-off series Lou Grant, making him one of the few television actors to portray the same leading character in both a comedy and a drama. He is also known for portraying Santa Claus in the comedy film Elf (2003) and its remake Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas (2014).

In 2009, he starred as the voice of Carl Fredricksen in Pixar's animated film Up, and made a guest appearance on CSI: NY in the episode "Yahrseit". In early 2011, Asner returned to television as butcher Hank Greziak in Working Class, the first original sitcom on cable channel CMT. He starred in the Canadian television series Michael, Tuesdays and Thursdays, on CBC Television and has appeared in the 2013 television series The Glades. Edward has most recently starred as Guy Redmayne, a wealthy, homophobic billionaire who supports Alicia Florick's campaign in the sixth season of The Good Wife.

My Friend Ed is a portrait of a patriot.

From the picket lines to the Pentagon, from the Sunset Strip to El Salvador, my friend Ed has fought for the underdog, cursed out the corrupt, and been a thorn in the side of the status quo. He's spent his celebrated life on the front lines of the fight for justice, and even at 83 years old he's still at it!

The goal of the organization is to bring artistic expression to the developmentally disabled children in our community. The event was produced by Patricia Watt, NYC Dance Alliance, Fred Astaire Studios and consulting producers Todd Allan and Beth Bogush, with Associate Producers Jessica Zippin and Alix Michel.


The evening started off with the Latin inspired performance “Tradición” from the musical On Your Feet, written by Emilio Estefan and Gloria Estefan and choreographed by Sergio Trujilo. This was followed by a welcome speech from Patricia Watt and Joe Lanteri, after which the Special Achievement in the Field of Autism and Related Disorders Award was bestowed on Dr. Joan Fallon.

It was Hollywood in Long Island as guests and celebrities arrived in chauffeured limousines wearing tuxedos, gowns and diamonds at Taste of the Oscars.

Taste of the Oscars took place on Academy Award night, February 28th, 2016, at the Madison Theatre Madison Theatre at Molloy College.  Molloy College partnered with the Long Beach International Film Festival, Long Island Pulse and News 12 to bring to all Long Islanders their annual Long island Oscar viewing party honoring Rocky’s own Burt Young in support of the Madison Theatre Scholarship for young filmmakers.

Comedian and host, Paul Bond, was the Master if Ceremonies through the festivities, games and trivia. From 5:30 – 7:30 PM guests  enjoyed  local food, wines, and cocktails from the following restaurants: Cannon Blackthorns, Taste of Greece, Viaggio, Chadwicks, Mesita, Salsa Mexicana, Sangre-DeUva, Bonefish Grill and Tony Columbos

Additionally Red Door Space primped the guests on the red carpet.  Jewels by  Kravitz Celebrity Jeweler, Idayne Kaye, and Peter Duffy Furs also walked the Red carpet.   The evening was also special because of an an award presented to Honoree: Rocky’s Own - Actor Burt Young.  Before his award was presented a special video message from Sylvester Stallone was shown to congratulate Mr. Young.

Gerald Tommaso DeLouise was born April 30, 1940 and is better known by his stage name Burt Young.  Mr. Young is an American actor, painter and author. He is best known for his Academy Award-nominated role as Sylvester Stallone's character's brother-in-law and best friend Paulie Pennino in the Rocky film series.

Young was born in Queens, New York, the son of Josephine and Michael DeLouise.  During my interview with the iconic actor he revealed he was trained by Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio. Young is a widower and has one daughter, Anne More. He now lives in Port Washington, New York.  Mr. Young also served a tour of duty in the United States Marine Corps from 1957-1959.

Young made his name playing rough-edged working class Italian-American characters, the best-known example being his signature role as Sylvester Stallone's character's brother-in-law Paulie in "Rocky" in 1976 for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He is one of four actors who have appeared in all of the first six Rocky films.Young did not reprise his role in the 2015 film Creed because his character died in 2012.

He has played similar roles in "Chinatown,"  "Convoy,"  "Back to School," "The Pope of Greenwich Village," " Once Upon a Time in America," "Last Exit to Brooklyn," "Downtown: A Street Tale," and even a brutal and darker role in "Amityville II: The Possession."  Young has also appeared in many television programs, including "The Rockford Files," "Baretta," " Law & Order," "Walker," "Texas Ranger," "M*A*S*H," and guest-starred in a "Miami Vice" episode, and made an appearance on "The Sopranos" ("Another Toothpick") as Bobby Baccalieri's father, who is dying of cancer and comes out of retirement to execute a hit on his godson.

Young is a painter whose art has been displayed in galleries throughout the world. As an artist, he has collaborated with the writer Gabriele Tinti, for whom he designed the cover for the poetry collection All over, as well as contributing the illustrations for the art book "A Man." Young is also a published author whose works include two filmed screenplays and a 400-page historically based novel called "Endings."

He has written two stage plays: "SOS" and "A Letter to Alicia" and the "New York City Government From a Man With a Bullet in His Head."

Horror fans got a real treat This past weekend. The Macabre Faire Film Festival returned to the Upsky Hotel in Hauppauge, Long Island again to celebrate excellence in independent Horror films from around the globe.


Macabre Faire events and Film Festival has a reputation for being a very friendly environment with a wonderful celebratory ambiance within an intimately sized space. If you are a person who needs to be at an event with 1000’s of people in a large space where you may need to attach a GPS on your friends & family so that you can find each other quickly and easily… then the Macabre Faire Film Festival may not be the event for you. However, if you prefer an atmosphere that runs steady; you enjoy costumes; you love movies, music, Halloween and fun non-pressuring vendors; you genuinely enjoy making new friends; you appreciate everything being within close proximity; and are comfortable around a few hundred macabre-loving fans like yourself, then it is most certainly the event for you.

This year the Macabre Faire Film Festive proudly showed 145 films.  These film range from Horror, Comedy, Feature Films and Shorts with a Saturnday Night Awards Ceremony Gala equivalent to the Academy Awards for Best in Category.

For starters the word “Macabre” is pronounced “ma-cob.” The “re” is hardly ever heard. What does it mean?
Although it is an adjective meaning “disturbing and horrifying because of involvement with or depiction of death and injury,” you should approach the Macabre Faire Film Festival with a lighter touch in so far as not all of the films screened are a gore-fest. Of course there isn’t anything wrong with adding some gore to your film but, when we hear the word “Macabre” we remember those hauntingly fascinating films that starred legendary greats such as: Vincent Price & Peter Cushing. Or those fantastic Gothic Horrors like those from “Hammer” films. These names in themselves represent what “macabre” means to the Macabre Fair Film Festival.

Their mission is to provide a venue for showcasing films within a celebratory & respectful environment, where fans can enjoy the independent films entered by those who passionately craft their Strange, Weird, Horrifying, Sci-Fi-tastic, Fantastical and Macabre-laden films. The opportunity to win awards, increase film visibility via press and possibly obtain distribution is always part of the equation with the Macabre Faire Film Festival.
