Oscar-Worthy Film Available For Virtual Screening

  LONG BEACH ISLAND – The Lighthouse International Film Society has made a name for itself by bringing high quality entertainment to the Jersey shore. Although early in the season, this year’s fest will have just as strong a line-up.

  Due to COVID-19, the festival was mostly drive-in and virtual in 2020. This year has already started online showings with a sneak peak preview of “Minari” directed by Lee Isaac Chung. It is already stirring up some Oscar buzz.

   The film description is: “A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, ‘Minari’ follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.”

  Showings start at 7 p.m. A ticket will give you a designated start time. You then have four hours to watch the movie and any bonus content. The film is available until February 25. The film is being offered in conjunction with N24, which will email you a confirmation with additional details.

  Tickets are $20, and can be purchased from the festival’s website at lighthousefilmfestival.org/

  A portion of the proceeds will benefit the 2021 Lighthouse International Film Festival.

  “Minari” is brought to you by Asian fusion dining at Zen, Gables Inn and Restaurant, and sweet Country Kettle Fudge Bay Village.
