The 10th Annual Coney Island Film Festival is this coming weekend September, 24th to the 26th 2010. Yes it's been a whole decade the film festival in Coney Island, which started as a shorts film festival is still going strong and vibrant. And it only gets better and better. It has also been named one the 25 coolest film festivals by Movie Maker magazine. Like the fabled town it spurs from, the festival has showcased, in film and video, everything from the bizarreness to the conventional from more than 500 films which have screened in the last decade. Rob Leddy of indiefilmpage.com has led the way along with Coney Island USA from its conception.
This year the festival honors Brooklyn filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. And the long anticipated documentary film Last Summer at Coney Island, by Brooklyn filmmaker JL Aronson.
