Child Actor Anthony Hobbs Stars in ‘Agent Hollywood’

“Agent Hollywood,” a 15-minute short film starring Anthony Michael Hobbs and released through Imagination Lunchbox, LLC, will be screened at the Newark International Film Festival Sept. 8-10.

The company that produced “Agent Hollywood” is also owned by Hobbs, who is already an award-winning actor and filmmaker at 12 years old and wrote and directed the film.

“Agent Hollywood,” his third film project, is a story about a child actor who is actually an undercover agent working to save the world from evil villains on a daily basis. It also stars Noah Forstner, Nicholas Forstner, Alaine Miller, Michael Forstner and Dylan Hintz.

Collectively, Anthony’s films have been screened at over 18 film festivals worldwide and garnered six awards, including Best Short Film and Best Film Director.

The Newark International Film Festival is a three-day event dedicated to the art of storytelling through film. It was the first international film festival hosted in Newark, the birthplace of Thomas Edison and Hannibal Goodwin, who invented the celluloid film in 1887.

The festival will be held at various locations through Newark – Newark Symphony Hall, Newark Museum, Newark Public Library, Rutgers University, New Jersey Institute of Tech, Essex County College, Military Park and Cityplex Theatre.

The films are screened in front of major players in the film industry. The Newark International Film Festival will also offer workshops and a youth festival where works by filmmakers 19 and younger are presented. The festival’s goal is to bring awareness to great talent in film.

The awards will be presented at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Anthony’s acting credits include the Emmy-nominated PBS miniseries “The American Experience: The Abolitionist” as a young Frederick Douglass. His starring roles also include the DreamWorks documentary “How to Train Your Dragon: Dragons and Dinosaurs,” a national United Way campaign, a series of Sprout Network segments, a Xfinity Network segment, a voiceover for TBWA World Wide advertising agency and the film “Waiting for Godot.”

As a model, Anthony has appeared in national print campaigns for Finish Line Athletics and Toys R Us.
