Rockaway Film Festival is a moving-image celebration that brings affordable, inclusive, and enriching cinema to the Rockaway peninsula, aiming to captivate and connect all members of our vibrant community.

We welcome submissions of all lengths and genres. We are looking for films that widen our eyes and open our minds. Premieres preferred, but not required. Rockaway residents submit for free, please email us for a waiver.

Every filmmaker who submits will automatically receive a transferrable ticket to any festival screening.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions:
