Some of you may remember actor/director Robert Fontaine in the interview we did with him on ‘Meet a Newburgher’. Thanks to a reader, here are some exclusive shots of his new film, Mi America, being filmed on Liberty St. in the Heights in Newburgh. Robert is also actively involved in Newburgh’s film office and hopes to get the word out to his film making colleagues that Newburgh is a very affordable and arts-friendly city only a short drive from NYC.
The plethora of architectural styles in both residential and commercial buildings, as well as the proximity to some of Hudson Valley’s most beautiful natural settings, along with a friendly and ‘take-action’ community are some of the reasons we will soon be seeing this full-length feature film “Mi America’ soon! Perhaps a premiere at our Downing Film Center? See below for more photos-
