Downbeach Film Festival in Atlantic City

DECONSTRUCTING DAD, the new award-winning Raymond Scott documentary film, will be screened Friday night, October 14th at 6pm, as part of the 2011 Downbeach Film Festival & Atlantic City Cinefest. Director Stan Warnow, and co-Producer Jeff WInner (me) will attend, and do Q&A.

UPDATE 1The film won the "Best Documentary Feature" Award. UPDATE 2: We were on the real boardwalk where "EMPIRE" takes place, and I learned this about the location of the movie theater: "Their 'Roaring Twenties' theme capitalizes on the success of the HBO series 'BOARDWALK EMPIRE' and accentuates the resort's Art Deco design, 1920s-era uniforms for employees, and music, drinks, and shows reminiscent of the period." Naturally, this retro environment was an appropriate setting for our film.
