8th Annual Coney Island Film Festival, September 26-28, 2008
Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY -- The 8th annual installment of the Coney Island Film Festival hits the shores of Coney Island from Friday, September 26th through Sunday, September 28th. This year's festival features one hundred twenty five films from around the world; a stunning array of high and low-brow fare, as diverse as the neighborhood it represents. Subjects range from the profound to the profane, showcasing the independent spirit and irreverent nature of the one and only Coney Island.
This year's centerpiece film is Peter LiPera's, Save Coney Island. Working with a small crew for over a year, director/cinematographer Peter LiPera paints an intimate portrait of Coney Island's first annual last season. SAVE CONEY ISLAND shows a group of boardwalk friends' journey over the course of a year as they try to preserve what they can within the ever-changing, ever-fading, atmosphere of Coney Island.
