Celebrating our seventh year, the Montclair Film Festival has established itself as New Jersey’s leading film non-profit, with hundreds of screenings, events, education programs, and community partnerships providing a unique opportunity for our diverse audience to connect with filmmakers working in all different genres and forms. In addition, our festival hosts dozens of film and television professionals, offering filmmakers a chance to forge new relationships across the industry. 

Featuring a rich program of films in the Fiction, Non-Fiction, World Cinema, Short and Student Filmmaking categories, as well as a program dedicated to the work of filmmakers from New Jersey, The Montclair Film Festival offers emerging and established artists the opportunity to present their films in a world-class screening environment, with curated competitions, Audience Awards, and opportunities to reach attending members of the national press. 

Located just a short ride away from New York City, with public transportation directly into midtown Manhattan, Montclair offers a relaxed community environment with sophisticated audiences deeply engaged in the art of film.
