MIDDLETOWN - The Hoboken Film Festival is underway in Middletown.

The festival moved to Middletown last year after a New Jersey theater was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. Festival Chairman Kenneth Del Vecchio says he had just finished shooting a film in the Paramount Theater when he fell in love with the town.

Del Vecchio's film "Rock Story," which will premiere at the festival, was also shot in Orange County.

Organizers expect somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000 people to attend the festival, which runs through June 5.

Restaurants in the city are hoping they will also have a chance to shine and show off the cuisine the city has to offer.
