Investors Bank and The Montclair Film Festival
Announce The Gift of
The Investors Bank Film & Media Center Building
The Montclair Film Festival to receive 505 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, NJ as permanent home of the MFF
May 9, 2015 – Investors Bank and The Montclair Film Festival (MFF) today announced that Investors Bank will donate the building located at 505 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, NJ to the MFF. The building will be named the “Investors Bank Film & Media Center,” and will be developed into a permanent home for the film festival’s expanding year-round programs, events, educational offerings, and administrative offices.
Investors Bank strives to be a different bank by making a positive difference in the communities it serves. Investors team members volunteer their talents and time in the local neighborhoods, while the Bank and Investors Foundation provide support to worthy causes, both locally and statewide. The Bank’s employees give back thousands of volunteer hours—a commitment that includes participating in donation drives and walks, serving on Boards of non-profit organizations, sitting on committees to support charitable causes, coordinating health and wellness screenings, and conducting financial literacy classes in our local schools.
“This incredible gift of the Investors Bank Film & Media Center represents a deepening of the generosity and support that Investors Bank has shown the Montclair Film Festival from its inception,” said Montclair Film Festival Founder Bob Feinberg. “As the festival expands into a year-round arts organization, the Investors Bank Film & Media Center represents a major milestone in the realization of our vision for a world-class film organization.”
“Investors Bank is proud to partner with the Montclair Film Festival to announce The Investors Bank Film & Media Center,” said Investors Bank President and CEO Kevin Cummings. “The Montclair Film Festival continues to be an outstanding event which features talented filmmakers. We hope the new Film & Media Center will help the organization in its mission to celebrate and preserve the art of filmmaking for years to come.”
