Tonight, the Garden State Film Festival celebrates its 12th year by moving the party from Asbury Park to Atlantic City.  For four days, film lovers can take in as many fresh, independent films as they can handle – and maybe balance it all out with panel discussions, Q and A sessions with filmmakers, an awards ceremony, and, of course, parties.

Christopher Benincasa recently spoke with Diane Raver, Executive Director and Founder of the Garden State Film Festival, about what to expect this weekend.  The festival runs through Sunday, April 6th.
