Debra Markowitz - 50s+, Film Commissioner, LIIFE Film Festival Founder whose making waves in the indie world!

Debra Markowitz started her career in the film industry when she created the Nassau County Film Office in 1989. She grew it to become the busiest film commission in New York State, second only to NYC, for most of it's existence. This past year, she has booked two long-term TV productions which will bring millions of dollars of direct economic impact to Nassau County, and billions of indirect impact.

Debra is one of the co-founders of the Long Island International Film Expo (LIIFE) which is heading into its 23 year, July 10 - 16, 2020. (www.longislandfilm.com)
