Short Focus at Montclair Film

February 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$8 – $10

SHORT FOCUS is a new, one-hour television series in partnership with WNET/Thirteen that explores the art of the short film through the eyes of a select and diverse group of established and up-and-coming directors across the United States. We see how these introductions into the film industry informed their later careers and how they were crucial to developing them as filmmakers. All of the artists cross age, sex, color and, ultimately, style in their pursuit of the short film medium and we are invited into their worlds to find more about the artist behind the work.

The program showcases five such short films, each blended with discussions with the directors, further illuminating the process of filmmaking as well as the rewards of learning through their craft.  From award winners at the Sundance Film Festival, South By Southwest, Vimeo’s ‘Short of the Week’ and Apple-supported films, SHORT FOCUS is an eclectic mix of dramatic narratives from seasoned talent including Katie Holmes (BATMAN BEGINS, DAWSON’S CREEK), veteran Academy Award-winning Directors like Ross Kaufman (BORN INTO BROTHELS) and emerging filmmakers like Reinaldo Marcus Green (MONSTERS OF MEN).

Join us at 7:00 PM for a special pre-screening reception with all of the filmmakers in attendance.
