The Backlot Festival ranges over the whole of the Kaufman Arts District, Queens’ first dedicated arts district comprising 24 blocks in lower Astoria.

The district is conveniently located just a few stops from Midtown on the M, R, N, & W lines of the NYC Subway.

Our festival check-in booth will be located adjacent to the backlot at Kaufman Astoria Studios, on 36th Street @ 35th Ave in Astoria.

All satellite festival venues are a short walk from the Backlot itself.
