Montclair Film provides a variety of exciting opportunities throughout the year that will help your students learn new skills, tell their stories, and showcase their creative talents.

Emerging Filmmaker and Emerging Screenwriter Competitions

Montclair Film’s Emerging Filmmaker Competition and Emerging Screenwriter Competition celebrate the work of filmmakers and screenwriters who are in the 6th through 12th grades.

Junior Jury

The Montclair Film Festival offers students in grades 10–12 an exciting opportunity to serve on their Junior Jury. Jurors will meet industry professionals and will learn how to analyze and adjudicate films. They will receive VIP treatment with free access and reserved seats for select films. After deliberating and selecting the best film in its category, the jurors will present the Junior Jury Award as part of the Montclair Film Festival’s Award Ceremony.
