Celebrating Emerging & Established Artists 50+
An annual festival including features, documentaries, short fiction, plays, and comedy from NYC artists.
Spring 2022 Festival
Last year's Spring 2022 festival was a success! All proceeds went to Goddard Riverside for programming to support older artists.
“Goddard Riverside is exceptional at empowering New Yorkers, especially older adults. It is so important that the voices and stories of older New Yorkers are shared, and the Gold Standard Film Festival, elevating the work of filmmakers aged 50 and over, does just that," said Council Member Gale A. Brewer (D-06). “Too many experiences of older people are left out of the mainstream—despite making up a large portion of the population—
and I hope this inaugural festival becomes an annual tradition."
