The 2012 Cape May Film Festival will light up the silver screen at the Chalfonte Hotel Friday through Sunday, Oct. 19-21.

On Friday the festival will bring in the creators of the website, which asks the question, “Which couples will make it after the credits roll?”

The Saturday night feature is “Mirror Dance,” a film about Cuban ballerina Margarita White, who left her country during the revolution to come to the United States. White will join the film festival Saturday, Oct. 20.

Day sessions Saturday will showcase some of New Jersey’s best short films and a guest curator speaking about the Black Maria Film Festival.

The Sunday matinee will be “Barbarian Days,” a documentary about Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian and other popular characters. Historian Rusty Burke will join the discussion.

A weekend pass is $35 for Cape May Film Society members and $75 for nonmembers. Passes go on sale 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19 in the hotel lobby or can be purchased in advance at
