Festival Directors Rich Lello, Chris J. Cullen and Brian Kopack

Chris J. Cullen, Rich Lello and Brian Kopack are three Jersey boys who enjoy going to events on the Jersey Shore.  After Hurricane Sandy in 2011, the shore was hit very hard and many people came together to help rebuild the shore.

Though many artistic events and film festivals have left the area.  We all work in the entertainment industry in some form and we all love the art of film making.  We want to bring back film festivals to the Jersey Shore and also celebrate those who are trying to break into the industry with the Short Film.

We decided to create a small intimate short film festival in the amazing area of Asbury Park, NJ to start our festival.  Now entering its third year, the “Hang onto Your Shorts” Film Festival.
