(Cherry Hill, N.J.) – Mayor Chuck Cahn and the Cherry Hill Arts Board are proud to partner with the Garden State Film Festival to present a “mini-fest” featuring some of the festival’s most critically and commercially acclaimed films in recent years.

The event will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 12, at the Croft Farm Arts Center, and is part of the Township’s annual Fall Into the Arts celebration, which runs from Oct. 11-26. The centerpiece of Fall Into the Arts is a juried photography show, which will be available for viewing before and after the film festival event.

“The Township is thrilled to partner with the Garden State Film Festival to present Cherry Hill residents with an exciting new addition to Fall Into the Arts,” Mayor Chuck Cahn said. “In the last several years, our historic Croft Farm has played host to a rich variety of events and activities that have become an important part of the fabric of our community. With the help of the Cherry Hill Arts Board, we have been able to offer our residents a caliber of art and culture that could typically only be found in a major city like Philadelphia, and to make it accessible and affordable to everyone.”

Tickets for the Film Festival are $10, and can be purchased at the door.

Slated for presentation are:
“Admissions” starring Academy Award nominee James Cromwell. Set in Heaven’s waiting room, “Admissions” hypothesizes on the possibility of a lasting peace, through the intersecting lives of an Israeli couple and a Palestinian man.
“The Wednesdays,” an Irish film and an ironic, touching tale of how an elderly couple keep things young.
“Jerome’s Bouquet,” the directorial debut of Princeton native Bebe Neuwirth, which takes a look at a day in the life of a meddling and manipulative widow who tries to control her late husband’s flower shop, her daughter, and everyone she comes in contact with.
“Un Peu Plus,” which features glorious cinematography shot on location in Paris, and follows Mme. Rousseau as she spends a perfect day sampling the delicious confections of the city’s finest patisseries.
“Miyuki’s Wind Bells,” a Japanese film that explores the journey of a young girl forced to leave her home in Tokyo, and bring her two young half-brothers to the country home of their quirky grandmother.
“Death Taxes and Apple Juice,” a hilarious look at the complex lives of adults as perceived by children.

The partnership is part of the Garden State Film Festival’s efforts to build its reach in Southern New Jersey and the Philadelphia region ahead of its main event in Atlantic City in March.

“We are so delighted to be partnering with Croft Farm Arts Center on this event,” says Diane Raver, Executive Director and Founder of the film festival. “The array of shorts we’ve selected are unique, diverse, and represent what the Garden State Film Festival is all about. We share stories from around the world, across the country, and our own backyard that deliver diverse points of view, on many subject matters. Shorts, in particular are special, as they are made by people more passionate about their craft than any financial reward. We hope that this presentation piques the interest of the greater Cherry Hill community in GSFF and many folks will join us for our 13th Annual event in Atlantic City, March 19-22, 2015.”
