Films and Film Festivals with the Film Commissioner, Debra Markowitz

This week, we sit down with Nassau County Film Commission, director of the Long Island International Film Expo, and writer/director in her own right, Debra Markowitz and John Marean.

We talk with Debra about how she helped found the Naussau County Film Commission and the Long Island International Film Expo. Delving into the history of film on Long Island, some of the do’s and don’t of festival etiquette, as well as discussing Debra’s own films, and her experiences attending festivals as a filmmaker who is also a fest director!

Stories of technical mishaps, irate filmmakers, and how the hell they find time to make their own films, on top of it all. You can find more info on, and submit to the Long Island International Film Expo here:

I actually know the moment I became known. It was at the Cannes Film Festival, when they showed ‘The Virgin Spring.’ I walked into that theater as one person, and I walked out as another.
