In 2012, a student project from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Film School found its way to Ocean Grove where they were looking for a place to film some period interior scenes.  This house on Main Avenue was perfect.  We asked Marlee Roberts  (above left), the producer, if we could screen the finished project in Ocean Grove, and that inquiry eventually led to the First Annual Blogfinger Film Festival in the Grove.  We showed only student film shorts, and there was a second edition in 2013.  Unfortunately we could not continue due to lack of sufficient interest in town.  We coulda been a contender.

Marlee Roberts has continued with her career, and she has appeared in at least four movies and has been involved in a number of  film projects.
