3 mins read

The Lighthouse International Film Festival was founded by a collection of filmmakers, film critics and film industry professionals who share a passion for film and wanted to create an event aimed first and foremost at film enthusiasts.

The 2017 9th Annual Lighthouse International Film Festival, taking place June 8-11th, will present feature films, shorts, documentaries and family films, from all over the world, as well as panel discussions with leading film industry professionals. Taking place on Long Beach Island, NJ — one of the East Coast’s most popular surfing and shore destinations.

Lighthouse International Film Festival is unique in that this is the third year that grants will be given to women filmmakers to have an opportunity to WRITE BY THE BEACH. We are confident that this program will grow along with LIFF. The Lighthouse International Film Festival is committed to contribute, promote and advance women in the field of  independent filmmaking to tell their unique stories. Independent filmmaking, by its very nature is about topics told by deeply passionate people who tell their stories about worlds we haven’t seen before or show us the world we already know as we continue to learn. Often, these stories are so raw and visceral that Hollywood doesn’t dare touch them. This grant brings women filmmakers to LBI for a week of WRITE BY THE BEACH to release their creative juices.

The festival celebrates four days of new, exciting and challenging films in honor of Long Beach Island’s historic Barnegat Lighthouse. This year it will be June 8-11th.
