JERSEY CITY, N.J., April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- What happens when a former paparazzi photographer gets the picture of a lifetime - a revealing shot of The First Lady? SNAPSHOT will premiere at 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 in Jersey City this year, from June 1- June 7, 2012.
SNAPSHOT screenwriter Robert Borneman was inspired to write the film as a result of tragic events including the death of Lady Diana to the recent suicide of Rutgers student, Tyler Clementi. 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." Robert and Joyce Borneman 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 former New Jersey judge, Del Vecchio is also HIFF's founder and chairman.
Joyce DeWitt, who plays "The First Lady" in SNAPSHOT says, "Ken Del Vecchio is a brilliant and wonderful producer. 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 of NYC's top morning show- Fox's- Good Day New York... On the program, she talked extensively about the film. Here's a clip... Click Here To See Joyce on Good Day NY.
Del Vecchio handpicked Eric Etebari ("Witchblade," "The Lincoln Lawyer") - a longtime lead and supporting actor in several of his films - to serve as SNAPSHOT's director. Robert and Joyce Borneman, previously served as executive producers for three Del Vecchio 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.
