What Is Cinema?

The Montclair Film Festival has been having a fantastic week! Between a delicious opening night with Chef, family activities, and a packed and energetic room for The New Golden Age of Television, the half-way point for the festival promises a fantastic weekend for all involved!

To thank the community for its support and enthusiasm, the Montclair Film Festival is running several flash contests on its Facebook page and through Twitter for FREE tickets to five different screenings over the weekend. All it takes is answering a (pretty darn easy) question about movies or the film topics to enter.

Each of these five films will have a Q&A, so these are special opportunities to get into the mind of filmmakers and behind the scenes of the films themselves. Music, College, Black Culture in Photography, Rebellious Art, and Defining Cinema are all included. For more information and schedules of films, click on film titles below. Winners will be randomly chosen every hour!

To enter, just email answers to MFF14@MontclairFilmFest.org and keep your fingers crossed! Good Luck!
