Atlantic City Short Film Festival To Feature Indies

Artistic event to be held at Show Boat on April 16-17

Atlantic City, the gaming center of America’s East Coast, could become the nation’s next “Sundance,” if movie-industry aficionados Steve Stanulis and Tracy James have their way.
On April 16 and 17, Hollywood types, tourists and movie-buffs will be heading to the Show Boat Atlantic City Hotel & Casino to experience the first Atlantic City Short Film Festival.

“The festival is giving film makers a chance to have their projects viewed by both industry experts and local audiences prior to distribution,” said Stanulis, who organized and co-produced the two-day event with James.

As the festival’s name denotes, all of the one-dozen or so films to be shown during the event are “shorts.” Categories will include: Drama, horror, comedy, thriller, documentary and animation.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at a reduced cost of $20 for a one-day admission, or $30 for a two-day package. If seats remain available, tickets will be available at the door for $25.

The panel of judges will include well-established film-industry experts, including seasoned directors, producers, casting directors and actors.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to introduce Atlantic City to some of today’s most talented independent film makers,” Stanulis said.
