The Garden State Film Festival announced today that it will return to its original home in Asbury Park for its “Sweet 16” anniversary after a four year hiatus in Atlantic City.
“We are coming back largely due to the popular and steady demand of our legions of fans,” said GSFF Board Chairman Nicholas J. Falcone While many factors played a role in our decision to return to our original home, we had to listen to them. This move is in no way is a statement about our four-years in Atlantic City, where we were given an incredible reception and great cooperation.”
The festival has a well-developed legacy in Asbury Park, a town which has its own rich history as an entertainment hub. Recently voted the “coolest small town in America,” the Oceanside resort has been undergoing a town-wide revitalization, and offers event goers screening locations, a diverse assortment of hotel and restaurant options, NJ transit service, and a bustling nightlife and music scene.
The 2018 festival dates are March 22 to 25, 2018.
More details will follow regarding the locations of the 2018 festival.
