The Second Annual Chain NYC Film Festival is underway in Long Island City, showcasing more than 100 films through Aug. 17. Documentaries, narratives and web series will be displayed alongside talkbacks and performances with famous and up-and-coming actors alike.

On Saturday, Aug. 16, there will be a retrospective of the career of the Oscar-nominated actress Karen Black, followed by a documentary by filmmaker Russell Brown, “Karen Black: On Acting.” That will be followed by a staged reading of her never-before-seen play, “Mama at Midnight” with actress Sean Young, who was in “Blade Runner” and “Ace Ventura.” The retrospective begins at 5 p.m., followed by the documentary. “Mama at Midnight” begins at 7 p.m.

Awards will also be distributed for several categories, including Best Narrative Feature and Best Screenplay.
