Garden State Film Festival, April 2 – 5

Posted on Updated on

Thank you, New Jersey!!!

garden-state-film-festival2You have chosen – wisely.  We know New Jersey folks have been waiting patiently for the premiere of  “the one” – that one great film – the film to solve all of the problems of our current times.  THREE-FIFTY is not that film but it’s in your festival anyway.  Yeah!  Trust us, screening THREE-FIFTY will take the Garden State and it’s  Film Festival to new heights of, ummm –  well, insanity and laughter.  This movie will complete you.

The Garden State Film Festival  will screen THREE-FIFTY sometime between April 2 – 5.  Check here for specific day and time updates.

The artistic philosophy of the Garden State Film Festival is rooted in the celebration of the independent film genre and the creation of a forum where local and other independent filmmakers can exhibit their work.  We would be those “others”.

Since 2003, such industry notables such as Glenn Close, Frank Vincent, Batman producer Michael Uslan, Austin Pendleton, Kurtwood Smith, James Gandolfini, Budd Schulberg and others have lent their support.  And now, those celebrities can say they’ve supported the same festival that screened Maurice Chauvet’s THREE-FIFTY — that hilarious tale of late fees, privacy rights and the easy availability of deeply personal details of your life.  We know they’ve been waiting to be included in the same paragraph with us.

Remember CERN?

Posted on Updated on

Remember last year when THREE-FIFTY screened at CineGlobe which is a film festival put together by CERN physicists who screened the films in CineGlobe, a cinema which sits a-top the world’s largest particle accelerator?  Remember that???  Welll, it’s ok if you don’t remember, but you will want to know that they’re getting ready to turn that particle accelerator “on”.  Article, photos and video footage here:

What is the point of the largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider?  Quentin King, who does complicated things at CERN and who has become a friend of ours, says it gives physicists an opportunity to study subatomic particles in what will be the closest duplication of the beginning of our universe.  A recreation of the moments just after the “big bang” which will be the closest scientists have ever gotten to understanding the beginning of our universe and deeper understanding of the fundamentals that make up our universe.
Read about it and then let us know your thoughts.
We must confess, to have screened THREE-FIFTY atop the world’s largest particle accelerator is dang cool bragging rights.
