2-Day Film Festival at The Historic Princeton Garden Theatre
Princeton, NJ, May 11, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The Nassau Film Festival will be running this year on Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, at the Princeton Garden Theatre. The festival is expanding this year to two days given the requests from festival goers to be able to show more films. 42 films this year will be screened from the 336 submissions received from countries in each of the six continents.
The highlights this year are:
- Michael Wang (China) The Story of 90 Coins; Branko Tomovic (Serbia)
- Red; James Hughes (United Kingdom)
- The Inuring; Wendy Keeling (USA)
- The Unconventional Gourmet; Fabrice Bracq (France)
- A Whole World for a Little World; Joao Inacio (Brazil)
- Shala; Mohammed Mohammadian (Iran)
- The Endless River; Danny Malin (Canada)
- I Promised; Mamadou Dia (Senegal)
- Samedi Cinema; Jenae Hall (Australia)
- The Moon Is Essentially Gray; Hannah Roman (USA)
We will also screen animation movies, documentaries and films by local filmmakers including Syth DeVoe, Communiversity; Kirk Pointon, A Wonderfully Difficult Journey (about developmental disabilities, Mercer Arc) and Tom Pyle, Passage of Hope (about mental health and the work of NAMI). The festival will also include student short films, including the winners of the Walnut Lane Student Film Festival.
The Nassau Film Festival has grown from 35 submissions in year one to 336 submissions this year. Festival goers asked last year about the possibility of expanding to two days given the quality of the 29 films that were screened. We are expanding the festival this year to two days and showing 42 films from filmmakers in six continents in animation, documentary and fiction films. I am so pleased to share these talented filmmakers and their films — which include some incredible works by students — with the community.
Festival times are Saturday, May 20, from 9:00 to 3:30 and Sunday, May 21, from 9:00 to 12:30 at the Princeton Garden Theatre. Admission, popcorn and refreshments are all free.
