The NJ International Film Festival Announces Lineup For Summer 2014


(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- The Rutgers Film Co-op/New Jersey Media Arts Center, in association with the Rutgers University Program In Cinema Studies, Jungle Software, Johnson & Johnson, Footage Firm, New Brunswick City Market, and Jimmy Johns, is proud to present the 19th annual New Jersey International Film Festival Summer 2014. Showcasing new international films, American independent features, animation, experimental and short subjects, and cutting-edge documentaries, the New Jersey International Film Festival Summer 2014 will feature 28 film screenings. The Festival will run from May 29-July 10, 2014.

All the competition films selected were screened by a panel of judges including media professionals, journalists, students, and academics. These judges selected the 24 finalists which will be publicly screened at our Festival. These finalists were selected from over 357 works submitted by filmmakers from around the world. In addition, the judges chose the Prize Winners in conjunction with the Festival Director. Prize winners will be announced after the screenings on Saturday, June 14.

Film Premieres:
24 films will have their New Jersey or Area Premiere (Middlesex County) screenings as part of the New Jersey International Film Festival Summer 2014. Some of these include: Jenni Matz's Rye Coalition: The Story of the Hard Luck 5 – an intimate and fiery rock documentary tracing the rise and fall of Rye Coalition, a band of five childhood friends from New Jersey; William J. Stribling's Lies I Told My Little Sister - a deeply felt and expertly acted independent feature shot in New Jersey about the blood ties that bind us to the past; Sebastian Wotschke's Horror Film – a stylish horror film featuring stunning cinematography and special effects while paying homage to the great German Expressionist films of the 1920s; Joe Basile's West End -- an intense family drama set on the Jersey Shore; Joe Siebert's The Sax Man -- the exhilarating story of Cleveland's beloved street musician, Maurice Reedus Jr., and his fall from the heights of acclaim to the humility of the street; Tamar Halpern and Chris Quilty's Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band (the most famous artist you've never heard of); Jamie Chambers's Blackbird -- a rich, delicate, and deeply moving feature film with superb cinematography and a stirring soundtrack filled with traditional Scottish ballad-singing; Brad Mays I Grew Up In Princeton -- a funny, absorbing and candid portrait of Princeton, New Jersey in the 60s and 70s, as well as a mosaic of memory, imagery, and music told by those who lived it; and many others.
