“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 the early 90’s, 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, Venice, Berlin, SXSW, Tribeca 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 Lion, The Salesman, A Man Called Ove and many more outstanding films which went on to receive numerous awards.  Over the past three years, we 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.

The festival is open to anyone, but seating is limited, so early enrollment is advised.  Subscription is $139 for five weeks or $245 for all ten weeks.  After March 1st, rates will go up.  Also being offered is a specially priced flex ticket so users may choose any eight out of ten nights for their convenience.
