Garden State Film Festival Adds Roy Farfel and Daniel Alphonse Boulos to its Board of Directors

Roy Farfel is a member of SAG/AFTRA and a 2nd Unit Director of the DGA and an esteemed member of the Academy of Motion Picture of Arts and Sciences.  Being able to direct actors in conveying a message or a feeling that has been written on paper to a theater audience is indeed a gift. But, to be able to tell that story through the medium of film, inefect directing actors and a crew of easily a hundred people or more, to be able to accomplish this not on the stage but in the streets of Spanish Harlem or the remote mountains of Georgia, is an even rarer gift.  Now add to this the element of action, stunts, a fist fight on the top of a building, a woman on fire, whatever the imagination of a writer can come up with and the total collaboration that goes on to make it even better. Now you have a situation where your leader has to truly be unique. 

Translating the written word and working with the director's vision to tell a story is truly Roy Farfel's passion, as he has some truly fantastic and successful films under his belt.  For example, his story telling is at its finest on these Oscar nominated/winning films.  From telling of the horrific scene of JFK's assassination in JACKIE (Pablo Larrain) starring Natalie Portman and Casper Phillipson, working with Mo'Nique and Gabourey Sidibe, in PRECIOUS (Lee Daniels), an angry, abusive mother fighting with and throwing her daughter and granddaughter down a flight of stairs, to working with the comically talented Marisa Tomei and Joe Pesci in MY COUSIN VINNY.
