Tenth Annual Bergenfield Film Festival – May 7

bergen field ff
The Bergenfield Film Festival’s goal is to celebrate independent and mainstream cinema and bring it to the Northern New Jersey area. The BFF aims to support filmmakers based in NJ as well as the world over. It is held each year, one night only, within five separate screening rooms, inside the beautifully redone Bow Tie Cinemas in Bergenfield, NJ. Filmmakers from all over the world have come here over the last eight years to see theirs and others’ movies screened. It is run by the Bergenfield Film Coalition (a non-profit organization).

Each filmmaker whose work is selected to be screened will receive a Certificate of Recognition for their contribution to the medium. The festival’s Best Feature & Best Short Awards will be given to the filmmakers whose work has been judged to represent the best in all aspects of the filmmaking process.

Ticket Prices:
General Admission: $12 per person
Senior & Student Admission: $10 per person

Hoboken International Film Festival – May 29 – June 4

Now in its tenth year, the 2015 Hoboken International Film Festival (“HIFF”) is being held May 29 to June 4, 2015 at the breathtaking Paramount Theater in Middletown, New York. With the Gala Awards Ceremony hosted by Gilbert Gottfried, HIFF will showcase numerous film and TV stars, and the world’s most cutting edge films. HIFF continues to grow – in 2014 HIFF had over 1,500 film submissions from all over the world, and less than 10% were accepted (the competition is fierce). Festival attendance eclipsed 15,000 people last year. A star-filled event, HIFF has had several Academy Award and Emmy winners and nominees, and numerous other fan-favorite celebrities at screenings, award ceremonies and special events.
