If you're unable to attend the welcome party and screening at The Woodland last night or want to enjoy more events at the SOMA Film Festival, here are a couple of programs that are on tap for this weekend.
Festival Favorites Program
Saturday, March 23, @ noon
Enjoy some of the most popular films on Saturday afternoon during the Festival Favorites Program. Films include “Deep Dish Apocalypse,” directed by Ron Morehouse, which tells the story of a man who tries to sabotage a woman’s relationship. “Nora Ephron Goes to Prison,” directed by Hannah Elless, is about two women from very different worlds who meet in unexpected circumstances. They become friends through their love for Nora Ephron.
Several other film favorites will be playing that day. Visit https://www.somafilmfestival.com/2019-schedule for more information and to buy tickets.
Cinema Ed Program

The Cinema Ed Program presents the Young Filmmakers Track, which will feature films by local and non-local high school students. Cameron Lipp, a Columbia High School student, will show a short documentary, “The Flyers,’ which will show young people on a flying trapeze. Max Goldstein, another Columbia High School student, will show a short narrative, “Detention 2038.” “Detention 2038” is about new technologies that will be implemented in public high schools during the year 2038.
There will be animated short films, short documentaries and short narratives at the event. There will be students’ work featured from as local as South Orange, Maplewood and Millburn and as far away as Oakland, Calif.
