CIFF Oct 6th - Oct 8th 2006

As described in the CIFF Web Site: The mission of the Coney Island Film Festival is to raise funds for the non-profit arts organization Coney Island USA and to present an engaging and entertaining program of films in the heart of Brooklyn's most storied neighborhood.
The Coney Island Film Festival screens a truly eclectic range of films from the U.S. and all over the world and much to the delight of our audience features a number of "made in Coney Island" productions each year. In 2006 the Coney Island Film Festival is celebrating it's sixth anniversary.
The festival's ties to carny culture are undeniable. The main screening venue is the legendary Sideshows by the Seashore theater, home to America's last authentic 10-in-1 circus sideshow. Our infamous opening night celebrations feature live performances by sideshow & burlesque stars.

Just a few minutes ago, I was thinking to myself how much I'd like to find a blog post from someone called "Things to consider when hosting a film festival" and this blog post reminded me of that. I've wanted to host a short film festival for a while now, and so far, I haven't found a lot of helpful insight, but your post was at least encouraging.
