Narrowsburg News 8/16/18
Did you catch a glimpse of the film crew in Narrowsburg last week? They were here with a New Jersey based break-dancer filming the trailer for next month’s Big Eddy Film Festival. You may have seen them doing dance interpretations of “Singing in the Rain” on Main Street, “Risky Business” at the Atomic Laundromat, or “Dirty Dancing” in the Delaware River. The trailer, which also features cameos by several Narrowsburg locals, will appear online and on television later in August, and will screen before each film throughout the Big Eddy Film Festival (September 14 to 16 at the Tusten Theatre, 210 Bridge St.). The festival’s film lineup has been partially announced, and tickets go on sale this week at bigeddyfilmfest.com.
