Add A-list celebrities and unforgettable events to the mix and GCIFF has become the "go to" Festival for film buffs and it is the last major film festival on The East Coast before Awards season.

This year, the Festival will honor legendary actor, Paul Sorvino (GoodFellas, Bulworth, The Cooler) with a Lifetime Achievement Award on Wednesday, October 23 during the Annual Benefit Gala at the brand new venue: The Space at Westbury. The Gala will also honor Susie Essman, (co-star of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm) with the Artist of Distinction Award for Comedy, assisted by our head of comedy Programming Jeffrey Gurian.
