Golden Door International Film Festival Lineup Announced

Golden Door International Film Festival announces 2016 line-up announced!

The Golden Door International Film Festival has announced their line-up for their 2016 edition, running September 22 to 25 in New Jersey. A mix of unique independent winners and mainstream majors anchor this year’s roster of entertainment, held at the beautiful Landmark Loews, Beacon Paramount theatre and Rialto-Capital.

Opening night (9/22) the world premiere of Chris Robert’s highly anticipated Another You, starring Ksenia Solo, Kris Holden-Ried, and Diego Boneta. Film focuses on the young and ambitious science major Sydney Jameson who finds love and refuses to let it go at all costs. What starts as an ordinary relationship with her boyfriend Marcus slowly becomes a fixation that takes Sydney into the darkest depths of despair. Driven by obsession, Sydney loses herself in a scientific break through, finding a way to use the theory of De Ja Vu to explore her past mistakes. How far would you go in the search for true love? Friday night (9/23), the Red Carpet screening of Miles Doleac’s The Hollow – ahead of its wide theatrical later in the year - starring James Callis (Bridget Jones’s Baby), Christiane Seidel (Boardwalk Empire), William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption), William Forsythe (Daredevil), Jeff Fahey (Lost) and Doleac (Containment).

Saturday night Red Carpet events include Mara Lesemann’s Detours, starring Carlo Fiorletta and Paul Sorvino, John Asher’s Po, starring Christopher Gorham, about a single dad raising a boy with autism, and Thomas Baldinger’s romantic-comedy Who’s Jenna..? starring Tracey Birdsall and Bill Sorvino. The GDIFF festival was founded and is run by the prestigious Sorvino family – with both Mira Sorvino and Paul Sorvino on the board – in particular acclaimed actor Bill Sorvino (founder) and wife Michele Sorvino (executive director). Filmmakers vie to win honours in such categories as The James Gandolfini Award, Narrative Feature, Music Videos and Local Films.

Info/Session Times

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL Founded in 2010 by actor Bill Sorvino and a small group of dyed in the wool Jersey Cityites. The renegade band of “old time Jersey City” residents set out on a mission to shine a light on Jersey City, New Jersey and to provide an equal platform to all filmmakers well known and otherwise. Since that time, Golden Door International Film Festival has anchored itself as a cultural focal point of Jersey City.
