The 2020 Lighthouse International Film Festival will open this year on Tuesday, June 16 and will close on Saturday, June 20. It will play new films in drive-in venues.
If you live at the Jersey Shore, this is definitely something you want to add to your calendar. This marks the 12th edition of the Lighthouse International Film Festival on Long Beach Island, New Jersey.
“While COVID19 put our daily lives on hold, it also shut down the window to the alternative universe of imagination, creation, and art that is cinema. Lighthouse International Film Festival is here to reopen this window on the big screen, as part of LBIs rejuvenation”, says LIFF executive director Amir Bogen, “While the drive-in option is being discussed in several festivals around the world, LIFF is willing to lead the way and make it happen for LBI’s amazing community and our fabulous filmmakers.”
Speakers include actor Jerry Levine as well as filmmakers Guy Nattiv and Annabelle Attanasio.
The festival is giving those interested in attending the opportunity to see movies on the big screens from the comfort and safety of the audience cars.
In addition, the festival is dedicated to the health and safety requirements of New Jersey while also keeping the social distancing guidelines.
