WBNJ-FM (91.9)  is partnering with the Lighthouse International Film Festival to present “Talkin’ Films,”  a weekly radio program that aims to bring listeners up close and personal with the many filmmakers and gives you a peek behind the screen. The program can be heard on the Barnegat Township-based radio station on Thursdays at 1 p.m. or online at wbnj.org.

Bill Clanton Jr., WBNJ general manager/program director, said host Christine Rooney will feature a special filmmakers series called “Beyond the Silver Screen.”  Topics include the art of cinematography, documentary filming, craft services, film critics, casting, filming, producing and many more.

“This series will prepare festival goers to fully appreciate what goes on behind the scenes of an independent film,” said Clanton. “Listeners can learn more about independent films and the people that make them possible in this informative program.”

Clanton said  2018 marks the 10th anniversary for the Lighthouse International Film Festival, 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. Running from June 7 to 10 at various locations on Long Beach Island, the festival will present feature films, shorts, documentaries and family films, as well as panel discussions with leading film industry professionals. —E.E.
