Talib Kweli

One of this years can’t-miss exclusive film and music events will take place Saturday, September 26th as world-renowned hip-hop artist and political activist Talib Kweli will be on hand for the world premiere screening and Q&A for his film "Talib Kweli: Prisoner of Conscious, Live from Brooklyn" in The Madison Theatre at Molloy College at 10pm during the 2015 Long Beach Intl Film Festival.

In May 2013 Talib Kweli released his fifth solo album. The following summer in June 2014, Talib performed the album in its entirety for a crowd at Williamsburg's Brookyn Bowl. This film documents that performance.

"Talib Kweli: Prisoner of Conscious, Live from Brooklyn" will screen as part of "The Joan Jett Music in Film Series", a new category added this year in honor of longtime supporter Joan Jett's involvement in the Festival and as an homage to her induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier in 2015.

Other films in the Joan Jett Music Film Series include “All in Time”, “Landfill Harmonic” and  “Lee’s 88 Keys” – a feature documentary that shares the story of 2015 Jazz Hero Award Winner, composer and pianist Lee Shaw. Shaw lived a diverse, accomplished, and charmed life but struggled with being a woman in a male dominated field throughout her career.

This year, the Long Beach International Film Festival (LBIFF) will be celebrating its 4th Anniversary as they bring a fresh line up of exciting films from around the world to Long Island. Taking place September 24-27th primarily in the City of Long Beach, NY the event will once again branch off into Rockville Centre as well. There are also three new screening venues to expand its film programming - along with filmmaker’s lounges and after parties at local restaurants and hotels.

The winner of Best Feature Film will receive one complementary studio day at Grumman Studios in Bethpage, NY along with the services of a colorist from Technicolor to assist in any future projects.

Kravit Jewelers is also a proud supporter of the LBIFF and believes creativity expresses individuality. Each year in collaboration with Idayne, a customized piece of jewelry is presented to an award winner to celebrate this achievement. Idayne is a Hollywood Jewelry designer and has designed for Cameron Diaz, Joan Jett and Miley Cyrus just to name a few. Last year she created a beautiful piece for Daniel Baldwin, who's film won Best Picture in 2014 at LBIFF. Idayne continues to support the festival with creating a piece each and every year for an award winning filmmaker. www.idayne.com
