We were so excited to be part of the big weekend at the 2018 Asbury Park Music and Film Festival!

Co-Founder and Co-President of Sony Pictures Classics Tom Bernard dropped by to talk about the Music and Film Festival and Asbury Park as a whole. Is Asbury the next Cannes for film or the next Nashville for music? Tom thinks so and he’s been an integral part of making that happen. As I said in the interview, I don’t know how they will top this year, but they always seem to do so!

Photos from the festival:

They talked about their incredible work creating their mobile recording studio buses for aspiring musicians in underserved communities.

Justin Kreutzmann son of the legendary drummer from The Grateful Dead Bill Kreutzmann stopped by to talk about growing up filming his father's band and the premiere of his film Long Strange Trip at this year's Asbury Park Music and Film Festival.
