Albanian Film Festival in New York

To all you cinema fanatics out there, especially all my Albanian family and friends, get your tickets now for the Albanian Film Fest taking place on October 2-9, 2014, at SVA Theater, 333 West 23rd Street in Manhattan. (If you can't attend the one in New York, the festival continues in Boston on October 11 and 12.)

The festivities begin with an Opening Night Gala that includes an invitation-only red carpet reception and a screening of The Hero, followed by a question-and-answer session with the cast and crew.

The festival lineup includes documentaries, feature-length films, short movies, panel discussions, and more.

The mission of the festival, in its third year, is to help artists tell the stories of Albanian struggles and accomplishments.
