NEW JERSEY FILMMAKER PREMIERES IN NEW YORK
by Tom Kelly
The latest feature film from award winning director Larry Rosen premiered on Monday June 6, 2016 at Hoboken International Film Festival. Based in New Jersey, Rosen shot "After the Outbreak" partly in the Hudson Valley of NY and partly in NJ. "It is a beautiful theater [in Middletown, NY] and a great venue to premiere the film" said Rosen. June 9th at 8pm is the awards show for the festival.
This film is the first in a trilogy of films that "all take place at relatively the same time and in the same place" said Rosen. "The series explores various storylines of people dealing with an infectious outbreak that is turning people into cannibals. As the infection spreads, society collapses and people begin turning on each other. There is much overlap and intersecting storylines between the three films, each building on the universe that the films create, yet keeping their own story and style."
After the Outbreak marks another feature in a long list of credits for director Larry Rosen (see http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3583561/). He has served as director, producer, writer, and even actor for many films across multiple genres. Many of his features are horror films. When asked what he is currently working on, he said that he has a film in a 48-hour film competition through Winter Film Awards, known as the WFA48.

As well as being an active filmmaker, Rosen is also the Festival Director of the prestigious Northeast Film Festival, www.NEFilmFestival.com
