IRVINGTON, NJ — A film by an Irvington resident will be shown during the Garden State Film Festival.

“Hard Feelings” directed by Irvington resident, Rick-kendy Noziere, will screen at this year’s festival, which will run from March 23 to March 26.

“We are extremely proud to present Hard Feelings as a part of our 21st Annual Film Festival, and to share this work with our global audience,” says Lauren Concar Sheehy, the festival’s executive director.

The film is about a young man who tracks down a former cop deemed not guilty in a killing to get him to tell him what really happened that fateful night, according to a press release from festival organizers.

“Hard Feelings” will screen on March 25 in the screening block from 4 to 6 p.m. at Cranford Theater, Cranford.
