The Golden Door International Film Festival has announced its 2016 lineup today. The New Jersey festival features a mix of indie winners and mainstream majors. It runs from September 22nd through the 25th and it’s held at the beautiful Landmark Loews, Beacon Paramount theatre, and Rialto-Capital.
The festival will host the world premiere of Chris Robert’s film “Another You,” which follows young and ambitious science major Sydney Jameson who finds love and refuses to let it go, turning an ordinary relationship into a dangerous fixation. Sydney soon loses herself in a scientific break through, finding a way to use the theory of De Ja Vu to explore her past mistakes. It stars Ksenia Solo (“Black Swan), Kris Holden-Ried (“K-19: The Widowmaker”), Diego Boneta (“Scream Queens”), and Richard T. Jones (“Judging Amy”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
On Friday, the festival will host a Red Carpet screening of Miles Doleac’s “The Hollow,” about a mysterious triple homicide involving a Congressman’s daughter and the FBI agents tasked to investigate. It stars James Callis (“Bridget Jones’s Baby”) Christiane Seidel (“Boardwalk Empire”), William Sadler (“The Shawshank Redemption”), and WIlliam Forsythe (“Daredevil”).
Saturday night’s Red Carpet events include Mara Lesemann’s “Detours,” about a newly single New Yorker who must relocate to Florida, John Asher’s “Po,” about a single dad raising a boy with autism, and Thomas Baldinger’s romantic-comedy “Who’s Jenna..?” about a financial advisor who starts dating an aspiring lawyer who may or may not be a famous adult film star.
The Golden Door International Film 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, the festival’s founder, and wife Michele Sorvino, the executive director.
