Arthouse Film Festival Begins September 24th

On September 24th, Arthouse Film Festival will return for ten weeks to its home base New Jersey theatres: AMC Mountainside and AMC Monmouth Mall.

If you are not one of the thousands of New Jersey film buffs who have attended in years past, just imagine seeing a festival-winning gem before release to the public, then the lights come up, and there in front of you are the creators of the film, ready to answer questions and discuss their work.

Oscar winners and nominees Danny Aiello, Alan Arkin, Frank Darabont, Jesse Eisenberg, Ethan Hawke, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Melissa Leo, Viggo Mortensen, Chazz Palminteri, John Sayles, Aaron Sorkin, Fisher Stevens and David Strathairn have joined Dylan Baker, Jim Breuer, Famke Janssen, Danai Gurira, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Derek Luke, Mary Stuart Masterson, David Morse, Connie Nielsen, Joe Pantoliano and Kevin Smith as guest speakers who have come to share their insights with festival participants.

The festival has hosted 1,868 movie premieres with 1,165 live guest appearances over the past 27 years.

“The program will always be flexible in order to take advantage of opportunities as they arise,” said festival director Chuck Rose.  “Wonderful surprises and fantastic celebrities can pop up out of nowhere, so we try to keep the schedule as fluid as possible.

          “Even before we started in 1990, I began working to create an international VIP network of actors, directors, screenwriters, producers, journalists and film industry pros whose jobs involve creating and evaluating the cream of Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, Telluride, Venice, Berlin, SXSW and the other important film festivals.  We also work to ferret out potential hits in the development and production stages so we are ready to pounce on the best films first.  

“Last fall, we premiered Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, The Florida Project and many more outstanding films which went on to receive numerous awards.  Over the past three years, we have premiered 85 movies which later earned a total of 25 Oscar, 27 Spirit, 23 Golden Globe and 24 British Academy Award nominations.”

For information, to see which films were screened in the past, or which ones may be screened this year, or to register, visit www.ArthouseFilmFestival.com  or call 732-870-6012.
