Prepare for another great season of top-quality, independent cinema in Monmouth County! Last December Monmouth Film Festival made its mark during its inaugural event at the Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ - attracting audiences from across the tri-state area; receiving rave reviews and top ratings. Film critic Joan Ellis of the Two River Times wrote, “The production quality, scripting, and acting of all the films was extremely high and the subject matter was refreshingly original”. “What an amazing first-year event this festival is. Everything was done first class with entertainment in mind” commented Associate Director of the NJ Film Commission, David Schoner.
The Festival and its programming team search endlessly to find the hidden gems amongst the film
industry. As the President of the company states, “There are no favorites, no special treatments, and no ‘good old boys club’. Every film gets the same fair opportunity to be chosen.”
The festival is currently accepting submissions for it's 2017 season, which will take place August 10-13th 2017, at the Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ. Submission categories include Feature, Short and Student films (all genres), Screenplays, Trailers, TV Pilots & Web series. For more submission info, visit: www.MonmouthFilmFestival.org/submissions
The festival will feature special events in August including the Industry Networking Event and Industry Film Panel - two MFF exclusive events aimed to promote, connect, and educate current and aspiring artists. Last year's panel included esteemed guests from all corners of the industry including Producers, Distributors, Filmmakers/Directors and more!
