The following updates have been posted on the Downbeach Film Festival Web site:
1. We have cancelled the awards reception at Showboat on Sunday night. The awards ceremony at Dante Hall will be held as scheduled at 7 p.m.
and… regarding the Revel party:
2. CREDENTIAL UPDATE: For filmmakers and VIP pass holders attending the party at Revel, you must pick up credentials and wristbands outside the Orleans Room at Showboat Friday night between 6 and 9 p.m. If you come to Revel without them, security might deny entrance. We have no room to handle credentials at Revel. Best bet? Go to Showboat and attend an evening with Robert Downey, Sr. and see Putney Swope.
and now, for the festival venues:
The 2012 Atlantic City Cinefest announces four venues for film screenings: Presenting sponsor, Dante Hall Theater, will host films Saturday and Sunday. Showboat will host the opening night film on Friday night. Carnegie Center will show films on Saturday as well, and Golden Nugget will provide a second venue for Sunday afternoon.
Regarding special Saturday screening of Boardwalk Empire:
HBO has granted permission for the Downbeach Film Festival to screen a not-yet-aired episode of season three of “Boardwalk Empire” at the 2012 Atlantic City Cinefest. The episode will air at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 13 at Dante Hall Theater, 14 N. Mississippi Avenue.
