About JERSEY SHORE FILM FESTIVAL:
Founded by entrepreneur and veteran filmmaker Stevie Doueck in 2006, the Jersey Shore Film Festival (JSFF) has grown from a sheer concept to a truly anticipated and promising event. The Festival attracts thousands of audience members from all over the tri-state area and promises to be an incredible experience for both the filmmakers and audience members.
The JSFF has positioned itself as a ‘filmmakers’ festival. The goal is to provide a common ground for the filmmakers from around the world to have the opportunity to meet each other, share their work, and interact with audience members. Filmmakers present their work, and speak about their process to fellow filmmakers, as well as to the avid audience member. They are afforded the opportunity to express their frustrations, as well as their successes with their fellow colleagues. It is a moment to interact, and dedicate what will become a commitment to the craft of being a filmmaker. As well as being a forum for the filmmakers, the JSFF also provides unparalleled and unprecedented entertainment to the Jersey Shore. Because the filmmakers are so dedicated to their films, it creates a truly unforgettable experience for the audience members to be a part of. The festival includes upscale food and decor, dancing, and mingling with prominent actors and filmmakers. All of this with the backdrop of the magnificent Jersey Shore.
The 11th Annual Jersey Shore Film Festival plans to be in 3 different neighboring towns along the seashore including Asbury Park, Deal Park and Allenhurst.
