The Garden State Film Festival
This weekend – if you’re around the Asbury Park area of New Jersey and are a fan of film the place you want to be is The Garden State Film Festival. Check it: http://www.gsff.org/. Among other attractions the Trailer for “Sorrow Hill” is on the schedule to premier at the festival (Saturday night at 9:00) here’s a link to Ron’s site for the details: http://grindhouse-pictures.com/grindblog/?p=53. Ron will be blogging and talking about his experiences from the festival tonight at 12:00 when he calls into the radio show: http://www.grindhouse-radio.com/.
The Garden State Film Festival has a little something for everyone. There’s something called “The Legends Behind the Comic Books” which is a documentary followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and Joe Kubert & Deny O’Neil (famous comic book guys). I’d love to check this out. There’s a film called, “Goodwill: The Flight of Emilio Carranza” which chronicles the life of the Mexican pilot who lost his life in a crash in the Pine Barrens. There are also panel discussions such as “Writers on Writing” and “Getting In Front of the Camera”. It’ll be a hoot.
It’s supposed to rain so a film festival is not a bad way to spend a Saturday.
See you at the movies.
