New Jersey Spotlight
MFF pays special attention to films with a New Jersey background or focus. Most screenings in the New Jersey Spotlight will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers or other special guests. Music has a heavy presence including the world premiere of David Bromberg Unsung Treasure; and rare theatrical screenings of The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town (pictured above) and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster. Other gripping documentaries bring insight to current events such as The Atomic States of America about the hazards of nuclear energy; Flat Daddy about the hardships on families of U.S. soldiers; and Unraveled about Wall Street corruption.
