Monmouth Film Festival: NJ Veterans Films
August 11, 2019 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm
New Jersey Filmmaker Tom Phillips features the Vietnam Veteran volunteers of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation for the core of his most recent film, Vietnam Aftermath. This film examines the aftereffects of serving in-country during the Vietnam conflict and the lingering effects being felt to this day.
The Monmouth Film Festival will be screening Vietnam Aftermath on Sunday, August 11 from 11:45am-12:45pm. Nicholas Marchese, President of the Monmouth Film Festival, and Rich Marchese, Vice President, have generously invited the Veterans involved with the film on-stage for a 30-minute Question-and-Answer session following the film. The Board of Trustees and staff of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation are proud to support this film and the recognition of our Vietnam Veterans and will be in attendance. The full schedule for the Monmouth Film Festival can be found here.
The New Jersey Veterans Films block will be a special presentation of New Jersey Vietnam short films from local filmmaker Tom Phillips’ “Forgotten” and “Vietnam Aftermath”. This hour-long special screening also includes a Q&A with the filmmakers and Veterans featured in the films.
