2015 Gold Coast International Film Festival Already Started!!

GoldCoastFilmFestival_500The Gold Coast International Film Festival is here! One of my favorite aspects about living in Long Island is the fact that we have access to the best of everything from education to film. This year, the 2015 Gold Coast International Film Festival has an exciting slate of films running from now until Sunday, November 15th in venues throughout the north shore and everyone’s invited to join!
