I wasn't able to go, so I don't feel it would be fair to give it New Jersey Treasure status. But a lot of folks did go to the Trenton Film Fest. The movie getting the most press is Anytown, USA, a documentary about the Bogota, NJ mayoral race. All politics is local, and here it is at the basic level- it doesn't seem too pretty. I can't wait to see this film. I hope the DVD makes it to Netflix someday, because there aren't any showings and it currently doesn't have a distributor (nor could I easily get a babysitter if there was an opportunity.)
And just in case you need to go book shopping this week, here's a voucher to Barnes & Noble to have 5% of your purchase total be donated to the Trenton Film Society. They'll have the fest again next year (hopefully) so if you missed it like me, better luck next year!
