The annual Golden Door Film Festival opens this Thursday, September 20th and runs through Sunday, September 23rd at the Landmark Loews Jersey in Journal Square in Jersey City, NJ. This festival showcases the works of present-day filmmakers.
As always, the festival also acknowledges the roots of the American film industry in New Jersey by having the Fort Lee Film Commission present a silent film produced in Fort Lee when Fort Lee was the first American film town and birthplace of the American film industry. The Fort Lee Film Commission has chosen the short dark comedy 'He Did and He Didn’t'. The film features the wonderful Mabel Normand and Roscoe Arbuckle. Arbuckle also directs this film which was produced out of the Triangle Studio on Linwood Avenue in Fort Lee. The Fort Lee Film Commission had the NYC based jazz band Gotham Easy create a new score for this film and Gotham Easy will play that score live to this film at the Loews in Jersey City on Sunday, September 23rd at 6pm.
