‘Little Spain’, now a ‘goodfellas’ in the Official Selection of Golden Door International Film Festival of Jersey City, hosted by the incredible talented Sorvino Family: Paul, Mira and Bill Sorvino.
Golden Door Film Festival was founded upon the premise that every film that is selected for our program and it’s respective filmmakers should have the opportunity or “Golden Door” to be on equal footing with all others. The name Golden Door Film Festival was derived from the poem by Emma Lazarus which adorns the base of the Statue of Liberty (in Jersey City, New Jersey waters!). The final line of that poem reads “I lift my lamp beside the golden door”. Jersey City, New Jersey is that golden door and Ellis Island (also in Jersey City waters) served as the door to opportunity for several decades. Set with the backdrop of the beautiful New York City skyline, this four day film festival holds the opportunity for filmmakers, actors and crew to network with colleagues and share their work with the public in the heart of the NYC indie filmmaking landscape.
