This Time Next Year still

All this week, we're spotlighting four films that will be in the running for our Camden International Film Festival Project of the Week contest.  At the end of the week, we'll have a vote for the project that you like the most.  That project will get to pitch their project at the CIFF Points North Pitch, where a world-class panel will give feedback on their projects and award one pitch project $1,000.  The Indiewire/CIFF Project of the Week winner will receive free lodging in Maine and a travel stipend!

Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.


In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.

"This Time Next Year"

Tweetable logline:

THIS TIME NEXT YEAR is an island symphony that captures a sleepy Jersey short community recovering in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.


Elevator Pitch: 

This Time Next Year begins just before Christmas 2012 and ends a year later. It will track the resilience of Long Beach Island's inhabitants during their slow rebuilding process. The small triumphs of individual families able to finally return to their homes will be set against the larger political issues surrounding the slowly released state and federal aid monies. What emerges will be an “island symphony” that addresses some of the major political questions of the day (the proper role of government, the rights of the individual, climate change) through the stories of a handful of indelible characters.

Production Team:


Jeff Reichert (Director/Producer)
GERRYMANDERING 2010
REMOTE AREA MEDICAL 2013

Farihah Zaman (Director/Producer)
REMOTE AREA MEDICAL 2013

Sam Pollard (Supervising Editor)
WHEN THE LEVEES BROKE 2006
GERRYMANDERING 2010
REMOTE AREA MEDICAL 2013

About the Production:

LBI is, in many ways, home for me. I didn't grow up there year-round, but a most of my family lived there so I spent good portions of my summers and other holidays there as a kid. My parents met there. I proposed to Farihah there on a family vacation. It's a special place, distinct from the image of NJ beach communities put forward by things like JERSEY SHORE. Within the story of this island's ongoing recovery from Sandy, there's a lot of heart on display along with situations that bring to the fore a host of fascinating political contradictions.


Current Status: 

In production.
