Asbury Park Music In Film Festival kicks off Friday night April 8th
The second annual Asbury Park Music In Film Festival (APMIFF) is set to kick off Friday night April 8th, right where music lives in the heart of beautiful Asbury Park, NJ. If you've ever been to Asbury Park you know there's no place in the world quite like it, and once you attend the APMIFF you'll understand why "it could only happen in Asbury Park."
This year's festival is home to premieres of films such as Miles Ahead, a no-holds barred portrait of the musical genius that was Miles Davis. Directed by Don Cheadle who co-wrote and also stars as the jazz trumpeter in what is already being called a career defining performance for him.
Also premiering, Eat That Question, Waiting For My Real Life, Tow Trains Running, and many more films, most accompanied by a Q&A session and/or musical performance following the film.
The festival runs all weekend long and will take place in multiple locations around town from the historic Paramount Theater and House of Independents, to the Stone Pony and Wonderbar. Of course the town will be booming with tons of great music including Bobby Bandiera, Gene Cornish, John Eddie, Pat Guadagno with Rob Popparozi, Joe Grushecky and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and many more.
It's all for a good cause as proceeds go to the Asbury Park Music Foundation which works to preserve, exhibit and promote the City of Asbury Park’s rich musical heritage – past, present and future – and to contribute to the City’s revitalization by securing Asbury Park as a musical destination.
