Golden Door Film Festival

Jersey City, New Jersey / September 20-23, 2018 / goldendoorfilmfestival.org

Improving the state of the state’s moviemaking infrastructure is a top priority at Founder Bill Sorvino (of the Sorvino acting family) and Executive Director Michele Sorvino’s Jersey City hub, whose name draws inspiration from the last line of Emma Lazarus’ ode to America’s immigrants, “The New Colossus.” (I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”) In 2017, Golden Door hosted policy-driven panels that focused on working with Senator Loretta Weinberg and Governor Phil Murphy to bring back tax credits to New Jersey, and on equipping east coast moviemakers with the resources at the NJ film commission’s disposal. Add to those initiatives GDFF’s philanthropic arm, which raises autism awareness through moviemaking, and it’s clear that this homegrown affair has a handful of causes worth rallying behind.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
