FORT TILDEN

FORT TILDEN, the debut feature film of directors Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, and starring Bridey Elliott and Clare McNulty, will open theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on August 14. FORT TILDEN, a comedy about two friends, Allie and Harper and their needlessly difficult journey to the beach,  was the winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at the 2014 South By Southwest Film Festival.

Amidst quarter-life crises, Allie struggles to prepare for the Peace Corps, while Harper awaits checks from her father to fund her artistic dreams. But the two friends quickly shun responsibilities for the day when a pair of good-looking guys invite them along for a carefree Fort Tilden afternoon. As the two young women board their bikes and embark on a lengthy journey to the beach, they quickly realize that, akin to their confusing, transitioning lives, they neither know where they’re going nor how they plan to get there.
