Algie The Miner

This special program will begin with a screening of Algie the Miner (1912) a short film directed by the first female studio owner Alice Guy Blaché of Solax Studio in Fort Lee, NJ. The historic short will be followed by a feature-length screening of the recently New Jersey-shot film, Lez Bomb.

NJ native Jenna Laurenzo will be on hand to introduce this film and do a Q&A following the screening. The BFC/ Fort Lee Film Commission will present its 2019 Alice Guy Blaché Award to Ms. Laurenzo at this event.


From the executive producer of There's Something About Mary comes a holiday comedy about a woman (writer-director, Jenna Laurenzo) who comes home with life changing news. As it turns out, there is no good time to drop the Lez Bomb. Produced by Bobby Farrelly and starring Cloris Leachman, Bruce Dern, Kevin Pollak, and Jenna Laurenzo.
