Filmmakers return to boardwalk for sequel

WILDWOOD—For local boardwalk rat Bob Ingram, Wildwood’s two mile stretch of boards is “ever changing, yet eternally the same.”

Because of that, Ingram, along Tony Deutsch, Anthony Deutsch, and Raymond Becker  filmed a sequel to Ingram’s popular boardwalk documentary, “Boardwalk: Welcome to Wildwood-by-the-Sea,” which was broadcast on PBS when it was released in 2004.

Their new film, “Boardwalk II: Back to Wildwood” will premier as the closing feature film at this weekend’s Cape May New Jersey State Film Festival. It will be shown at 1 p.m. Sunday in Cape May’s Chalfonte Hotel.
