On October 15th the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival/New York opens at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) on Broadway between 61st and 62nd Street with our print partner DOWNTOWN Magazine as its media sponsor. The festival will run a full slate of films getting either New York or World Premieres through October 20th, films not to be missed by naturalists, conservationists and anyone simply fascinated by wildlife.

The Festival's mission is to call attention to the precious species and habitats that are critical to the survival of humanity. Many of which that are threaten with extinction by the very humanity with which they share the critically fragile ecosystem we call Mother Earth.

The following are three of the most significant premieres that wildlife aficionados will not want to miss.

Wild Colours of Cuba, (World Premiere)

Friday October 18 at 6pm-8pm. Duration: 15 minutes.

Cuba is home to characteristic and brightly colored creatures, yet little is known about the unique colors of its fauna. This short-documentary reveals the causes and purposes of their unique colorations. This is a fascinating and colorful story about the famous Cuban Trogon and iridescent hummingbirds, to aquatic lizards and the most colorful snails on earth. Tania Escobar, Producer & Director.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
