Locally produced film wins ‘Best Supernatural Thriller’ award at New Hope Film Fest

by June Portnoy

During the New Hope Film Festival’s Award Ceremony last month, Guy Quigley had the honor of accepting the Jury Award for Best Supernatural Thriller of “Apparition,” a feature film shot and produced by his Doylestown-based media company, Thundersmoke Media. The film was also nominated for the festival’s Danny Award (Best Picture) and for Best Director.

“Apparition,” which has won many awards at film festivals around the world, was one of 89 films from 11 countries at New Hope’s Seventh Annual Film Festival. It was shown to a captivated audience on July 23rd at The New Hope Arts Center during the festival.

“Apparition” has many local ties to this area. Not only was Guy the film’s executive producer, but his son, Jody Quigley, a Doylestown native and a multi-award winning actor, had the lead role.

“Many area residents will recognize The Knight House, a restaurant located in historic Doylestown where this film’s engagement party scene was shot,” said Guy. “We also shot many exterior shots along the streets of Doylestown, in addition to using a New Britain property for several scenes.”

New Hope Film Festival is proud to present “All in Time” by Eastern Pennsylvania filmmakers Chris Fetchko and Marina Donohue at the County Theater in Doylestown, Pennsylvania on Thursday May 19th 2016 at 7:30 PM. “All in Time” received rave reviews from the audience during the 2015 New Hope Film Festival, where the filmmakers walked away with the Audience Choice Best Art House Feature Award, the Best Alternative Feature Award, and the Indie Spirit Award.

The film is about Charlie, who leaves his desk job in New York and moves back to his home in Pennsylvania to follow his dream… managing his favorite hometown rock band. Charley truly believes the band’s glory days are ahead. Charlie goes through an emotional tailspin when the band’s guitarist doesn’t agree with his optimism, and his relationship with his girlfriend is on shaky ground. With the help of an elderly neighbor and a young intern, Charlie tries to get the band on track and his girlfriend back before it’s too late. A fun inspiring movie that is not to be missed.
