APP Alum Antonio Ayala at the Garden State Film Festival

Thursday, Jan 31, 2019

Antonio Ayala (APP Alumni '15) will appear at the Garden State Film Festival this spring. Ayala co-produced the feature film, I Wrote This For You, in which the edges of reality are blurred when a young man struggles to overcome a broken relationship.

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. The artistic philosophy of the Garden State Film Festival is rooted in the celebration of the independent film genre and the creation of a forum where local and other independent filmmakers can exhibit their work.

The film will screen at Asbury Park in New Jersey on Saturday, March 30th from 2:15-4:30pm.

Tickets available here.
