PALM BEACH, Fla. - March 30, 2015 - PRLog -- "Heart of the Shore" a film by the Emmy nominated filmmaker Cliff Charles will screen at the 2015 Palm Beach International Film Festival during March 26th- April 2nd, 2015. This is an especially exciting time to screen this film as it coincides with the festival’s 20th anniversary. Heart of the Shore follows one year in the lives of people recovering from the devastating force of Superstorm Sandy along the New Jersey shore and through these people, we learn that picking up the pieces after the storm is even more difficult than surviving it.   Heart of the Shore is a riveting and true tale of residents and local business owners that face increasing barriers to recovery, created by big business and policy makers. The weight of their burdens are seemingly insurmountable but with the help of charitable organizations, caring citizens, community and family they persevere. Cliff Charles states “It’s an honor to be accepted and a great pleasure to bring Heart of the Shore to the 20th Palm Beach International Film Festival. I am inspired by the people in this film for their character, their strength and their ability to stand up in the face of great adversity. The people who shared their stories with us are truly living testaments to the phrase “Jersey Strong” and I believe we’ve represented them well. Acceptance of this film helps in keeping an ongoing conversation on modern disasters and the realities of Long term recovery. “

Heart of the Shore will have two screenings in the festival. The first on March 29th at 3:30pm at the Cinemark Palace  and the second on Tuesday March 31 at 12:00pm at the Muvico Parisian 20 at City Palace.
