Cape May Film Society Winter Program: See the Premieres, Meet the Filmmakers!

(Cape May, NJ) The Cape May Film Society’s Winter Program has always given movie lovers a reason to come in from the cold—but this year it’s presenting the best of the premiere films from its Film Festival. “These were films that had their world premiere right here at our 2008 Festival,” says Stefan Prosky, Curator for the Festival. “And you still won’t be able to see these movies in theaters or on TV.” The program will be held on Sundays, January 18 and 25 and February 1 at Congress Hall. The Blue Pig Restaurant is offering a special menu lunch before the programs that will include the price of your ticket to the screenings.

“And one other important feature of this program,” Prosky says, “there is no other place where you can see these movies followed by a special presentation from the filmmakers who made them.” The program will host works and filmmakers from New Jersey. “These are among the most well-received films from the 2008 Festival,” says Prosky. “For those who missed these selections, make a point to see them in the upcoming weeks.”

January 18:

  • “Seasons in the Valley” narrated by Elliott Gould, this film chronicles the journey of Jamaican migrant workers and the plight of New York’s apple farmers. When the only permanent thing is change, what endures is the human spirit. Winner of “Best Documentary” at the 2008 Queens International Film Festival. New Jersey Premiere at 2008 Cape May Film Festival. Producer/Director Adam Matalon will be on hand to answer questions.

Also coming on January 25:

  • “Paper Dreams” is an excellently crafted short film that had its world premiere at the 2008 Film Festival and won Curator’s Choice Award. The film’s director, Mike Marino, will be on hand to answer questions.
