HIFF Opening Night

June 3, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The Hoboken International Film Festival is returning to the Paramount Theatre!

This HIFF Opening Night Party & Ceremony includes numerous Celebrity Guests and:

* Mingle with the Stars and the world’s most cutting edge Officially Selected Filmmakers at a Closed, Elegant, Extravaganza Cocktail Hour, with an array of complimentary fine hors d’oeuvres/meals and deserts, as well as complimentary cocktails…The menu and beverages are provided by ShopRite Catering, Stella Artois, Dana Distributors, Ferreira-Carpenter Wine Club, BullChicks, and more.

* HIFF’s Award for Excellence in Film & the Arts personally accepted by legendary actor DANNY AIELLO (Academy Award nominee; Do The Right Thing; Moonstruck; The Professional; 29th Street) . A tribute video honoring Mr. Aiello’s extraordinary career will be played directly before the award presentation.

* Worldwide premiere screening of CRIES OF THE UNBORN …A highly controversial film that chronicles a jury’s deliberation over the fate of four people who allegedly kidnapped a woman to save the life of an unborn baby. A faith-based thriller starring multiple Academy Award and Emmy winners and nominees that weaves in and out of the jury room, CRIES OF THE UNBORN is a modern-day ode to the Henry Fonda classic 12 Angry Men that offers a powerful climatic twist ending which may likely change views on the wholly important and divisive issue of abortion…Starring in the film are: Robert Loggia (Academy Award nominee; Scarface), Lindsey Haun (“True Blood”; Shrooms), Blanche Baker (Emmy winner; Sixteen Candles), Angela Little (American Pie Bandcamp; My Boss’s Daughter), Deborah Twiss (Kickass; A Gun for Jennifer), Nina Transfeld (The Grand Theft), Joanne Baron (The Ungodly; iMurders), Alycia Cooper (NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”); Suzi Lorraine (Wrath of Crows; Dead of Nite), Justin Deas (6-time Emmy winner), and introducing Allison Thomas Lee.…Produced by Kenneth Del Vecchio, Directed by Waleed Bedour, and Screenplay by Kenneth Del Vecchio & Francine Del Vecchio.

* Hosted by Hilarious Comedian Buddy Fitzpatrick
