Montclair Film is committed to making our programs and facilities available to all patrons so that your visit is as easy and rewarding as possible. It is our policy to maintain an environment free of all forms of unlawful discrimination. Montclair Film is an Equal Opportunity employer.
For venues used by Montclair Film during the festival and throughout the year, we work with venue management to facilitate accessibility needs. To request specific accommodations, please contact us at least two weeks prior to the scheduled program so that we have time to accommodate your request.
All of our programming, including the festival guide, is available on our website where you can enlarge the text and view it for better clarity.
WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY AND MOBILITY
Wheelchair seating is available in all venues. Please note this seating option in the Accessibility Requests box during checkout when purchasing your tickets. This will assist our venue managers to prepare for your arrival on the day of the show and allow us to contact you with further information to make your experience at the festival as seamless as possible.
Please note there is no elevator to Loge, Lower Balcony and Upper Balcony seating at the Wellmont.
Upon request, most of our venues will provide wireless radio frequency hearing assistance receivers. See box office to request or email ADA@montclairfilm.org.

During select conversations, speech-to-text real-time captioning is provided by TotalCaption and Globetitles.

THE ACCESSIBILITY SCORECARD
For the second year, Montclair Film will participate in the Accessibility Scorecard Survey. This will provide documented feedback from attendees (filmmakers, professionals, and audience) on the current state of accessibility so film events can identify strategies to make their events more inclusive. Look for the survey at the end of the festival.
Universal accessibility is an ongoing effort and we welcome your feedback so that we can continually improve our services and create the most inclusive experience possible.
For accessibility-related questions, please contact us at ADA@MontclairFilm.org or call the box office at 973-783-6435.
