Winter Film Fest

 

The 1st Edward Dunn Film Festival at New Hope Arts

Saturday, January 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Doors open at 6 pm.

Join us for the first public presentation from the unique collection of films and protectors collected by Edward Dunn (1916—2002), resident of Edison, NJ, WWII veteran, auto mechanic, and life-long film enthusiast. His passion for the moving image includes hundreds of films and more than 200 projectors, silent and sound from 1930s –60s.

 The New Hope Arts’ 2 hour program is a selection of films arranged for variety and entertainment for all ages of movies fans including samples of vintage TV sit-coms, U.S. Dept. of Defense programs c. 1950, movie house travel logs, newsreels, and unique movie snippets. Movie-house treats are provided for the screening. Original projectors will be used for the screening and several vintage machines will be on display.       

This presentation is curated by Charles Tiffany, owner of Mr. Dunn’s collection, and Andrew Barnum, film historian and collector. New Hope Arts sponsors the event during the Lambertville, New Hope Winter Festival.
