Local Filmmaker Selected for Garden State Film Festival

Rumson Hill Destinations Past

The Garden State Film Festival announced that the film Destinations Past: Rumson Hill, directed by Fair Haven resident, Chris Brenner will screen at the 2018 Garden State Film Festival located in Asbury Park.

In 1905, one of New Jersey’s famous industrialists, Thomas McCarter, built an enormous estate in Rumson. Today, the estate is gone, but several amazing features live on. The film portrays how the property came to life, how it shaped a community, and how it dissolved into suburban development.

โ€œWe are excited to present Destinations Past: Rumson Hill as a part of our 16th Annual Film Festival in Asbury Park, and shine a spotlight on the extraordinary talent from our state,โ€ says Lauren Concar, the festivalโ€™s Executive Director.

The film will screen on Sunday, March 25 from 12:30 P.M. to 2:30 P.M. at City Council Chambers during the Garden State Film Festival which runs from March 22 through March 25. Individual screening tickets are $15 in advance, and $17 at the door. Weekend passes are $50 in advance, and $55 at the door. Day Passes are also available: the Saturday Day Pass is $30, and Sunday Day Pass is $25. Tickets are available at and at festival box offices.
