Stefano Da Frè, Director & Screenwriter of STOLEN DOUGH said, “I am honored that ‘STOLEN DOUGH’ will have its New Jersey Premiere at the Garden State Film Festival. I am blessed to have worked 6 months in Monmouth Junction, N.J. doing post-production on ‘STOLEN DOUGH’ with our colorist David Fraunberger and Cinematrographer AJ DeSimone, so this feels like a great homecoming event. Asbury Park is the home of musical legend Bruce Springsteen, and you can tell that the Garden State Film Festival attracts world-class international talent at their festival”

The film’s protagonist, “Anthony “The Big Cheese” Mongiello, the inventor of Stuffed Crust Pizza says, “It is so hard to explain how truly happy I am. I am finally able to share my story of my lifelong journey explaining the facts about who really invented stuffed crust pizza. The thought that our film will be seen at the Garden State Film Festival is just over the top exciting for me.”
