16 ACRES theatrical release ... 

16 ACRES, one of our opening night films at New York's fall festival, will have its New York theatrical debut on Friday, November 16th and will play for one week at the Quad Cinema in New York City. The film received the highest audience ratings at this year’s festival and tells the dramatic inside story of the rebuilding effort at Ground Zero over the last 11 years. The New York Post has called it "riveting and emotional" andVariety described it as "uncommonly engrossing and articulate." The filmmakers will be hosting Q&As after the 6pm shows on Friday, November 16th, Saturday 17th and Monday 19th. For more details, please visit please visit
