The Queens Underground Film Festival will be hosting a free movie night Dec. 3 at the King Manor Museum in Jamaica. At least 20 movie shorts, videos and full-length features from independent filmmakers are set to be screened throughout the night.
In addition to the film screenings, there will also be trailers shown for movies set to be screened at the Queens Underground Film Festival’s upcoming International Red Carpet Black History Month Film Festival, which will occur this February and April.
According to the event’s organizers, each movie was selected to be shown because they were fan favorites from previous festivals held throughout the year. This will give others who missed seeing the movies at the previous festivals a chance to finally see it, as well as those who have already seen it the opportunity to enjoy it again. Genres of the movies range from drama, to action, to comedy, to mystery.
The event won’t just be featuring free movie and trailer screenings. There will also be a holiday pop-up set up for people to work on their holiday shopping list.
The event is expected to run from 2 to 7:30 p.m. The museum can be found in Rufus King Park, at 150-03 Jamaica Ave.
It will also be offering tours throughout the day, as it does every Saturday. These tours help to educate people about the history of downtown southeast Queens dating back to the 1700s.
