A local film festival is looking to turn into an annual event, but organizers need the public’s help to make it a reality.
The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema is teaming up with Seed & Spark, a crowdfunding platform that focuses on film and film related projects, We Transfer, and Bow & Arrow Entertainment to participate in the “100 Days Of Optimism” rally and raise money to make the festival a yearly event.
The festival is returning to Kew Gardens on Aug. 3 through 12. The team at Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema is hoping to turn the festival into a World Class Film Festival, so they set up the crowd-funder on Seed and Spark to help make that goal a reality.
From March 21 to April 19, Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema is looking to gain 1,000 followers and raise $10,000 through the crowdfunder. The top 10 projects that reach their goal qualify for additional funding through Seed & Spark, We Transfer and Bow & Arrow Entertainment, which include an additional $9,000 in funding, $50,000 in grants and over $100,000 in marketing support.
The goal of the campaign is to get as many stories of hope, change, redemption and inspiration made. Those who donate to the campaign are eligible for perks ranging from social media shoutouts, festival swag, and All Access VIP Passes to the festival this summer.

Old Timer’s Note — We’re indebted this week to Joseph Raskin, one of the city’s foremost transit historians and former MTA director of governmental relations, for this week’s story about the World’s Fair IND, a special subway line in Queens during the 1939-40 World’s Fair.
Two World’s Fairs have been held on the grounds of what is now Flushing Meadows Corona Park, in 1939-40 and 1964-65. Given their continuing service past the park (and possibly helped by a catchy song advertising subway service to the 1964-65 Fair), most people will think that public transit access to the Fairs came only from the still-existing services to the north of the park, MTA New York City Transit’s Flushing Line along Roosevelt Avenue and the Long Island Rail Road’s Port Washington Line.
