“Best of Rahway Reel Shorts”

January 19th – 8 pm

In 2019, the Rahway Arts and Business Partnership will continue to expand the Culture Crawl Concept to include the Culture Crawl Film Series, with the first pop-up screening, “Best of Rahway Reel Shorts,” scheduled for Saturday, January 19th from 8-10:30 pm at Atelier Rosal (74 E. Cherry St.) in downtown Rahway.

For the series, RABP will partner with Nick and Heidi Rosal, the proprietors, and curators of Atelier Rosal, a custom framing shop and art gallery, as well as with Lisa Vandever, a Rahway-based film curator and festival producer, most recently including the Rahway Reel Shorts Film Festival (RRSFF).

The series’ debut screening, “Best of Rahway Reel Shorts,” will include award-winning works from the 2018 edition of the RRSFF, with offerings ranging from comedy to drama to experimental – some goofy, some sexy, some serious. A Q&A discussion with any attending filmmakers, several of whom are based in New Jersey, will follow the screening.  A spread of light nibbles and refreshments will be included in the admission, and available throughout the event.

Tickets are $16 when purchased in advance and $20 at the door. Admission is limited to those 21 years and older. Doors open at 8:00 pm, screening starts at 8:30.
