Great Gatsby's ghost! The third annual Gold Coast International Film Festival will spotlight comedy during the Oct. 21-27 series.
The fest’s lineup will include films and events with legendary comedians, writers and actors, the Gold Coast Arts Center announced.
Dubbed “Laugh Island,” the week-long schedule will include appearances by Susie Essman, Joe Piscopo, Eddie Griffin, Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling and Paul Provenza.
Our mission has been to promote and support the arts and in particular, film, throughout our Long Island community through education, exhibition, performance and outreach,” Gold Coast International Film Festival Executive Director Regina Keller Gil said. “To that end, we can take pride in the thousands of students, residents and audiences who benefit each year from our presence here.”
“Great Gatsby” director Baz Luhrmann introduced his new film to a Port Washington crowd in May, a coup for the Gold Coast International Film Festival.
