Film Fest Shines Spotlight on Staten Island


Beginning today, the Staten Island Film Festival will shine a spotlight on the
borough as a destination for film production and release. Developed by the
Staten Island Economic Development Corporation, the four-day festival will
include numerous films shot in New York City, including the Academy
Award-nominated Ferry
, about women who ride the Staten Island Ferry, and Staten
Island Catapult
, which focuses on a commuter who attempts to build a
catapult that launches people from Staten Island to Manhattan in five minutes.
