HOLMDEL, NJ - OCTOBER 2016 - Join filmmakers, enthusiasts, artists and industry professionals as New Jersey’s newest film festival, Monmouth Film Festival, makes its grand debut Friday, December 16th, through Sunday, December 18th, at the Two River Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey.
Monmouth Film Festival Inc. is New Jersey’s newest premiere non-profit film festival, referred to by its founder, as being “by filmmakers, for filmmakers.” The festival’s mission is to connect independent artists and create an environment for artists to promote themselves and their work. Nearing the closing of their inaugural submissions, the Festival has received submissions from all over the world by filmmakers of all levels of experience.
Monmouth Film Festival is based out of the vibrant and welcoming Monmouth County, NJ. This inaugural festival will feature independent films, narrative, documentary and student films, short and feature length, from all over the state, country and across the globe. So no matter your taste in film, we have it all! With over 16 hours of films, chosen for their quality by fellow filmmakers, including Monmouth County’s own award-winning Nicholas Marchese, you’ll be sure to experience independent filmmaking at its finest.
The festival invites artists from across the county, state and country to join them on Friday, December 16th for the Monmouth Film Festival networking event. This event is exclusive in part for the festival’s accepted filmmakers, but with a small contribution, invites you to join with our featured filmmakers and other professionals to collaborate and network while enjoying locally catered cuisine. Professionals include individuals from our partnered relationships such as Backstage and iPitchtv - giving artists the opportunities to pitch their films to major studios and meet with industry casting directors to get their future work in the hands of talent they desire. Tickets will be limited.
Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 17th-18th, delve into the world of film. In November, our complete 2016 Festival Guide and Schedule will be listed to supply you with all the information regarding tickets and film screenings. Tickets will be on sale approximately a month prior to the festival. With limited seating and screenings, be sure to order your tickets early!
