New foreign language films, American independent films and shorts from around the globe promise to provide an unforgettable experience this summer. 
“We offer the Early Bird film passes because patrons have asked for them,” notes Alan Inkles, founder and director of the Stony Brook Film Festival. “The response to the Early Bird offer in the past has been a vote of confidence in the Festival,” says Alan Inkles. “Many film goers who make the Stony Brook Film Festival an annual event each summer have been buying Early Bird film passes for years.”  
Notes a film festival regular, “I buy an Early Bird pass because I know I’m going to want to attend most of the films in the Festival and the Early Bird Pass locks the event into my summer schedule. I trust that the programming will be high caliber. Since film passes have sold out in past years, I buy one early, save money, and I arrive early so I can choose a good seat in the theater.” 
Passes are available at or by calling (631) 632-ARTS [2787].
