What happens when a former paparazzi photographer gets the picture of a lifetime – a revealing shot of The First Lady? SNAPSHOT will premiere atÂ Hoboken International Film Festival’s (HIFF) 2012 as the Opening Night Feature Film. The festival will be held at the Hudson Cinemas at the Hudson Mall inÂ Jersey CityÂ this year, fromÂ June 1- June 7, 2012.
SNAPSHOT screenwriterÂ Robert BornemanÂ was inspired to write the film as a result of tragic events including the death ofÂ Lady DianaÂ to the recent suicide ofÂ RutgersÂ student,Â Tyler Clementi.Â Borneman said, “SNAPSHOT weighs the public’s right to know against an individual’s right to privacy. We examine this issue in a dramatic and entertaining manner.”Â Robert and Joyce BornemanÂ served as executive producers of SNAPSHOT.
Kenneth Del Vecchio, SNAPSHOT’s producer, is a critically acclaimed filmmaker/best-selling author who has produced 15+ feature films that star several Academy Award and Emmy winners and nominees. A formerÂ New JerseyÂ judge,Â Del VecchioÂ is also HIFF’s founder and chairman.
Joyce DeWitt, who plays “The First Lady” in SNAPSHOT says, “Ken Del VecchioÂ is a brilliant and wonderful producer.Â SNAPSHOT was an exciting film to act in. It has an unexpected twist in a story about the challenges of personal integrity vs. personal needs.”
DeWitt served as co-host ofÂ NYC’s top morning show- Fox’s-Â Good Day New York…Â Â On the program, she talked extensively about the film. Here’s a clip…Click Here To See Joyce on Good Day NY.
Del VecchioÂ handpickedÂ Eric EtebariÂ (“Witchblade,” “The Lincoln Lawyer”) – a longtime lead and supporting actor in several of his films – to serve as SNAPSHOT’s director. Robert andÂ Joyce Borneman, previously served as executive producers for threeÂ Del VecchioÂ written/produced films, “The Great Fight,” “The Life Zone,” and “The Grand Theft.”
Del Vecchio inked a three-picture deal with Screen Media for these critically acclaimed – and highly controversial – flicks, directly after they premiered last year at HIFF; all three movies will be released theatrically later this year.
