Â In October 2012, the second annual Golden Door International Film Festival of Jersey City lit up screens at the Landmark Loewâ€™s Jersey Theatre and other venues where films from all over the world premiered and winners chosen. On Sat, March 16th, the festivalâ€™s Executive Director Bill Sorvino presents â€œThe Best of the Festâ€ where three films from the Golden Door International Film Festival will have encore screenings at Art House Productions in Jersey City.
The feature film to be shown is â€œMaybe Tomorrowâ€ directed by Michael Wolfe and starring Wolfe, Dominik Tiefenthaler and Paul Lange. At the Golden Door, the film won Best Picture, Best Lead Actor, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay. The film centers on the friendship between three men and the test their friendship endures when they become involved in a crime that ultimately changes their lives forever.
Next on the bill is â€œPollination*â€ Â a short film about the special life of plants by filmmaker Sam Borowski and starring Federico Castelluccio (of â€œThe Sopranosâ€) and Chris Kattan.Â
Rounding out the evening is â€œMy Time with the English Tourist,â€ a short documentary by Jersey City resident John Dunstan that won the Audience Choice award. The film short is a 13-minute valentine to Jersey Cityâ€™s Liberty State Park and the wildlife that resides there as seen through Dunstanâ€™s camera lens during walks with his English bulldog Tommy.
Â â€œThese three films were chosen across the spectrum,â€ Sorvino says. â€œThe feature film, â€˜Maybe Tomorrowâ€™ is a powerhouse movie starring Michael Wolfe.Â Johnâ€™s film is a short documentary about the walks he took with his dog and the beautiful wildlife in Liberty State Park. Itâ€™s a great film. And Samâ€™s film â€˜Pollination*â€™ packs a 7-minute wallop.â€™ Continue reading Golden Door Does Its Best Film Festivalâ€™s â€˜Best ofâ€™ to be Screened at Art House Productions in Jersey City
