When the scores are final and the minutes have run out, we are good with your joy and your sorrow. When the last theatre is darkened, when the last load is brought home, it is ok to feel the feels. It is ok to leave it all on the field, even your tears. To push beyond yourself into that place where the event becomes what was imagined....to push that hard and to bring your best is something I hope everyone has the chance to experience.

Although I don’t remember the exact date, I will never forget stumbling upon an article describing the activating philosophy of Colin Wilson, which stopped him in his tracks as he was about to attempt su***de when he was a teenager. His epiphany became my epiphany: Live as if at any moment you may get the 'absurd good news.'

When the pandemic began taking a toll on the entire globe, myself included, Wilson's quote inspired me from head to toe like it has many times, allowing me to summon hope that allowed me to glimpse what is possible when we shift our mindset and dig deeper to see a new perspective.

If you're in need of a little hope, treat yourself to Judith and Friends, a short film directed by artist Judith Modrak that is currently a part of the Queens World Film Festival Listening Tour in partnership with the Queens Museum.

I'll drop a link in the comments below.

Watch: Veteran Capt. Sixto Valentin of the NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst Hospital Police appeared with Queens World Film Festival during a Veterans Day film screening on PTSD and mental illness.
I'm excited to join Katha Cato of the Queens World Film Festival and others today to be 1 of 7 in the video series, 'Listening Tour,' discussing and in times. The sculpture below is the gorgeous work of Judith Modrak, another .
Thank you Katha Cato and the Queens World Film Festival for your continued support and NYC H&H/ELMHURST HOSPITAL for the opportunity!
This morning, we joined our friends, The 11th annual Queens World Film Festival & Film Festival Flix to present proceeds from the sales of Hero Tickets, along with bottles of our blk. functional beverages for all the ‘Heroes of Elmhurst’ at NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst for their hard work, commitment, and continued dedication to the Covid pandemic.

Dr. Melina Jampolis, our Chief Nutrition Officer, spoke on behalf of blk. and signed copies of her newly released book, Spice Up, Live Long: A guide to using herbs and spices to live a longer, healthier and more vibrant life.
Almost two years after its official premiere, 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗜𝗻𝘃𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗠𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 film continues to raise awareness on hunger and poverty as it receives more global recognition this year.

The film had won at the 2021 Rhode Island International Film Festival, making it one of the festival’s nominees for The Academy Awards consideration!

It was also awarded at this year's Festival Internacional de Cine de Sax and Queens World Film Festival. A huge congratulations to Directors Javier Fesser & Guillermo Fesser, and Peliculas Pendelton on these achievements!

is a 32-minute film shot in post-conflict Marawi City, with actual residents starring as actors. While the film depicts a story of hope and happiness amidst hardships, interconnected systemic issues must be addressed in order to end the cycle of hunger.

Quand une caméra du parc de matériel associatif de Pictanovo voyage jusqu'au Paraguay ça donne JUAN, a film by Louise Heem !
Voir le trailer ➡️ https://bit.ly/juan-trailer

Le film réalisé par Louise Heem et produit par J'aime ce Garçon, suit Juan, adopté il y a 30 ans, qui part à la recherche de sa mère biologique, sur sa terre natale...

Bravo à l'équipe du film, qui a été récompensé au Jaipur International Film Festival (Inde) par le Welcome Regards Award for Best Debutante Director (meilleure réalisatrice pour un premier documentaire).
Il a également été sélectionné au Dhaka International Film Festival au Bangladesh, au RapidLion - The South African International Film Festival de Johannesburg, au Cine Las Americas d'Austin (US) et au Queens World Film Festival de New York.

-- Location réservée aux associations (loi 1901) adhérentes au parc de matériel associatif de Pictanovo et domiciliées dans la Région Hauts-de-France --
Happy 4th of July! As you celebrate, remember the men and women who fought for our freedom and all of the survivors who struggle with post trauma. We know that not everyone was able to make it to the premiere last week at the Queens World Film Festival, so over this holiday weekend and extending through July 11th we'd like to offer you the opportunity to see our film in a limited special event. Click the link below for details about the film and the live Q&A on Sunday July 11th from 1-4 pm ET. It's important to make mental health a common conversation, and we hope that you will join us!
