The film was winner of seven Academy Awards in 1946, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. The screening is also sponsored by 1-800-FLOWERS.

This year’s Gold Coast International Film Festival takes place Nov. 9 – 15, in venues throughout the north shore of Long Island. The festival kicks off with an intimate conversation with award-winning writer, director and producer Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) happening on the campus of LIU Post on Nov. 9 and continues with more than 60 screenings showcasing Hollywood’s best actors including Richard Gere, Oliver Platt, Rene Russo, Jason Sudeikis, Rebecca Hall, Christopher Walken, Amber Heard and many more industry stars, plus award-winning feature length and short films from the world’s most prestigious festivals (Cannes, Toronto, Sundance, Tribeca).
