The 6th annual Montclair Film Festival shows 150 features and shorts in six venues over this amazing 10 day event.
The Montclair Film Festival’s mission is to connect global filmmakers with audiences in a diverse, culturally vibrant community by presenting films and year-round programs that engage, entertain and educate through the power of visual storytelling.
Some 22,000 people, many local but some from out-of-state and even overseas, are expected to attend this event, which this year runs April 28 to May 7. Major stars will be speaking and appearing in panel discussions, including John Turturro, Bill Nye, and Stephen Colbert (he and his wife Evelyn, Montclair residents, have deep ties to the festival; Evelyn Colbert is president). At many screenings, filmmakers and talent will be present for post-film Q&A’s.
Additionally, the Festival has recently opened a new $3 million headquarters at 505 Bloomfield Avenue, the Investors Bank Film & Media Center, which opened to the public at the beginning of the month. It contains a 65-seat movie theater, Cinema505, that will show films not only during the festival but year-round, as well as classrooms where aspiring filmmakers can take courses in cinematography, directing, editing, and screenwriting.
