Montclair Film Festival Fundraiser, Feb. 4


The Montclair Film Festival will be hosting an unforgettable event on
February 4th, 1980’s style.

This important fundraiser will help the MFF to raise the roof and renovate their new home and headquarters to open in April 2017 in the heart of downtown Montclair’s arts district! 

You may have heard that Investors Bank donated the building at 505 Bloomfield Avenue to the MFF.

What you may not have heard is that the MFF is in the process of undergoing a $2.5 million Capital Renovation Project, including a:

Multi-purpose Community Hall 
  • 65-seat micro-cinema
  • Community events
  • Public programs
  • Facility rentals
Film + Media Education Center
  • Classroom
  • Production Lab
  • Storytelling Sound Studio
Administrative offices for their growing family of full- and part-time staff who run the spring festival and expanded year-round programs for students, schools and adults.

Silver level LEED certification, including elevator for full ADA accessibility and rear courtyard. 

Proceeds from this event will help to support our signature spring festival and growing schedule of education programs, while also helping to outfit our new education classroom and production lab with computers, laptops, cameras, iPads, and recording, lighting and editing equipment and software.
