According to their website “The Garden State Film Festival was born in 2002 after a chance encounter in a Sea Girt, New Jersey grocery store by  film industry veteran Diane Raver and the well-known Hollywood actor Robert Pastorelli. Through their deep ties to Hollywood, Mr. Pastorelli and Ms. Raver were able to bring an all-encompassing event to the State of New Jersey. It premiered in 2003 and was immediately deemed a huge success.

I recently had a chance to chat with Garden State Film Festival Executive Director Lauren Concar Sheehy and Vice Chair of the Board of Directors Heather Brittain O’Scanlon. We discussed the 2022 event and the scheduling for this years event both in-person and virtually.
