Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab 2019
Fine Art Shippers is happy to announce that Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab 2019 will be held at the Billie Holiday Theatre on September 20-22.

Fine Art Shippers, an international fine art shipping company headquartered in NYC, is happy to announce that this year’s edition of Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab will be held at the Billie Holiday Theatre on September 20-22. This important cultural event will bring to Brooklyn a fabulous selection of shorts, films, experimental videos, and other works by some of the most talented filmmakers and artists from the African Diaspora, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab is an arts organization and film festival founded in Brooklyn, NY by two talented people: Lydia Darly and Billy Gerard Frank. Lydia Darly is a filmmaker and award-winning actress of Guadeloupean descent, who was born and raised in France. She was featured in Renny Harlin’s famous 2004 horror film “The Exorcist: The Beginning” and was Jordan Bayne’s assistant director on his 2011 short film “The Sea is All I Know” starring Melissa Leo. Lydia Darly is also a frequent guest speaker at various film festivals, known for her support of independent and women filmmakers.

Billy Gerard Frank, the co-founder of Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab, is a multi-disciplinary artist and filmmaker born in Grenada. This year, this talented person, who now lives in New York, represents his home country at the prestigious Venice Biennale that is often called “The Art Olympics.” Frank’s research-based work addresses the issues of global politics, race, sexuality, migration, minority status, and post-colonial subjects. His films and mixed media artworks have been featured in many different group and solo exhibitions held in the United States, UK, and the Caribbean.

Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab is an annual film festival born from the collaboration between Lydia Darly, Billy Gerard Frank, and another Brooklyn-based arts organization – RestorationArt. The Festival is organized for emerging and young artists and filmmakers from and about the African Diaspora, Latin America, and the Middle East. It is currently held in Brooklyn, NY but is going to expand its borders next year to include Marseille, France and Ghana, Africa.

Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab 2019 has a very interesting festival program that will take place at the Billie Holiday Theatre, starting on September 20. The Festival will focus on the themes of Social Justice, Immigration, Multiculturalism, and Identity, presenting works by a whole range of talented and creative people from around the world. These include dramatic and documentary films, shorts, experimental videos, performances, and virtual reality. Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab 2019 will be juried by the Egyptian-American director and cinematographer Mona Eldaief and the famous American producer Lauren Beck whose film “Manchester by the Sea” won two Oscars at the Academy Awards 2017.

Nova Frontier Film Festival and Lab 2019 is expected to be a memorable event full of arts and culture. The Opening Night Ceremony will start on September 20 at 7pm with a short fiction “Yasmina” by Claire Cahen & Ali Esmili France. Very recommended!
