As we open the doors to our new home at The Investors Bank Film & Media Center, located at 505 Bloomfield Avenue, we thought we’d show a little extra hospitality to our friends and neighbors this year by hosting a series of open conversations fueled by free coffee from our friends at Java Love! Join us each weekend morning for a casual discussion of upcoming films, tips for navigating the festival, and conversations with surprise guests. Bring your questions and ideas, and come ready to talk. You never know who might drop by!
