ABOUT THE FOUNDER: Cindy Mich is an active media personality and award winning journalist. She contributes to a cluster of online and offline platforms, and her radio shows, Cin's Chat Corner and Sons Spotlight, hold a total of 95,000 listeners spread across twenty states with a 12% international following. Cindy prides herself on performing and providing interesting and intriguing interviews on and off red carpets, and to her, every interviewee is a celebrity. Cindy has authored a teaching textbook for CNA's on the treatment of seizures in elderly patients, co-authored a mentoring manual for filmmakers, and has published three books. NYC audiences will one day be able to see her two plays brought to life at an Off-Broadway playhouse, and she has one feature film and two short films due to be released in the next three years. She has taught creative writing, broadcasting and publishing in both the public and private sector, and has acted as a professional model in the past. Cindy is also the founder and fueling force behind the NYC based independent film festival, Art is Alive, now in its fourth year. She and her partner, actor Michael Gentile, run a second film festival entitled Bedford Falls FF. This endeavor focuses solely on black and white film projects. Finally, in 2019, she launched her own publication, The Art is Alive Magazine, which focuses on showcasing artists of all kinds. Of all of the labors of love that she is embraces in her daily life, raising her beautiful children is her favorite and most fruitful job. ‚Äč



With all that is happening in the world, I aspire as a Festival Founder to help families stay active and in tune with the arts. I have seen through my other festivals how cinema makes people feel -energized and enriched. They love to be entertained and enchanted. Going to the movies provides audiences with an escape from the evils in our country. Moreover, many have been at home and losing hope, and I wish to motivate so very many to move from their couches and get back into cinemas.

Recently, my partner and myself visited Oshkosh to look at locations to host my main film festival, Art is Alive. We came across a dynamic array of different venues, along with some sensational residents. I felt comfortable, and heard by the town locals that they would welcome life going back to the basics. Hence, here I am, attempting to bring art to Oshkosh.

I will be showcasing a total of 18 films over a span of two days, along with a workshop on acting and screenwriting. I will be offering this event as both a live and virtual offering.

Listed below IS THis year's SCHEDULE. Q and A Panels will be done after each film block.
