Forum on Life, Culture & Society (FOLCS) at Touro College presents the Eighth Annual Awards Night + Screening Days

This year, for the very first time, FOLCS will be virtually hosting its annual International Short Film Competition. In the spirit of continuing to provide a public service for our audiences sheltered at home, we will be making our independent short films and the 8th Annual Awards Night available to you at times when gathering together in person is not possible. There will be an online conversation with filmmakers and guests on April 8th, 2021, for our 8th Annual Awards Night. Audiences will be able to submit questions to the moderator

Register now to reserve your place and secure screening access to the eight finalist films.


Registering for this event will allow you to screen the finalists’ films over a period of five days (Screening Days), and the opportunity to tune in to our Awards Night, where we will hold a virtual discussion with our finalist filmmakers and present the awards. The presentation will include awards for Best Short, 2nd and 3rd places, Audience Favorite, and Best Screenplay.
