Over forty films are screening at Two River Theater in Red Bank from August 11-13. Movies from all over the world says Nick Marchese, founder of the Monmouth Film Festival.
“You can sit through every film, even if you aren’t interested in the particular topic. You will say ‘wow, that was a really well done film.’ That’s one of the biggest thing that we focus on at the festival. We receive tons and tons of submissions and it works down to a program of about 38 shorts and five features.”
One of those films tells the story of a famous Jersey Shore filmmaker.
“There’s a film called ‘Shooting Clerks’ which is the narrative retelling about Kevin Smith who was a native of Red Bank who shot the movie ‘Clerks’.”
Several panel discussions on filmmaking will accompany a weekends worth of feature length and short movie screenings. For more info visit monmouthfilmfestival.org.
