film festival 2012Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival! November 7-11
Atlantic Theaters at the Midway

Many in the beach area and beyond look forward to the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival every year.  In fact, visitors from far and wide come to Rehoboth on this weekend to screen a variety of films they might otherwise not have the opportunity to see!  The Film Festival website describes the event this way: Since its inaugural event in 1998, the award winning Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival has developed into a premiere, Mid-Atlantic cultural event. The five-day Festival showcases approximately 100 of the best American and international films including features, documentaries, and shorts. Film enthusiasts enjoy the convenience of seeing all the films at one, multi-screen location. The Festival also offers informative seminars, opportunities to converse with celebrity guests, as well as special events including Children's Cinema Corner for elementary school-aged children.

Tickets are available for purchase under a rather elaborate system.  Click here to learn more about the films being offered and ticket purchase.  Between the movies, watch for The Debbie Reed Team slide, and enjoy the show!

Hurricane Sandy Approaches!

Governor Markel has declared a Delaware State of Emergency, and strongly recommends that people within 3/4 of a mile of the coast evacuate by 8:00pm Sunday.  The Debbie Reed Team office will close at noon today, and reopen once the storm has passed and the "OK" is given to return.  Everyone, stay safe, and we look forward to getting back to working for you just as soon as we can.

Best Wishes,

The Debbie Reed Team
