From March 15-25, The 8th Annual Queens World Film Festival will take place, featuring over 100 shorts and feature-length narrative and documentary films. On Sunday, March 18, "Nothing Changes: Art for Hank's Sake" will make its NYC premiere, and screen during their "All About Art" film block inside the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens at 3:30 PM. It will be joined by three shorts preceding it, which are all about life as seen through the eyes of an artist.
"Nothing Changes: Art for Hank's Sake" is a documentary about the aging artist, Hank Virgona. Since 1960, Hank has made the journey from his home in Queens to his studio in Union Square to make art. At 88 years old, Hank doesn't let his age, cancer, or lack of funds stop him in his pursuit of understanding how art and life are one and the same.
Turning eight in 2018, QWFF includes an annual multi day/multi venue festival, youth-oriented educational initiatives and year round screening opportunities for QWFF filmmakers, past and present. The festival is programmed in thematic blocks with evocative titles, and each program is followed by a post-screening dialogue to engage audiences from the demographically diverse communities that comprise the borough of Queens.
