4. Outdoor Cinema Socrates Sculpture Park

AN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
CELEBRATING THE CULTURAL DIVERSITY OF QUEENS

WEDNESDAYS IN JULY & AUGUST  |  7 PM
Pre-screening performances at 7 PM, films begins at sundown

Socrates Sculpture Park and Film Forum, in collaboration with Rooftop Films, present this annual international film festival, which features a different country or culture each Wednesday evening between July 6 and August 24. This year’s series examines the theme of The River, either literally or metaphorically, as we celebrate our 30th anniversary and LANDMARK exhibition. Each week throughout the summer series, the film is paired with live international music and local food vendors representing each week’s featured country of origin, making for a diverse array of films, food, and music. This program invites visitors to picnic on the grass, see musical and dance performances, enjoy the cool waterfront breeze as the sun sets over the Manhattan skyline, and watch exceptional international films on an outdoor screen.

SUPPORT
