Monmouth Film Festival Teams up with Local Organizations for Upcoming Film Screenings and Workshops

Monmouth Film Festival is pleased to host film screenings and workshops in the coming weeks. These events include partnerships with Two River Theater, Monmouth Arts Council and Holmdel Library.

Monmouth County Teen Arts Festival

For the second year in a row, Monmouth Film Festival, in partnership with Monmouth Arts Council, is hosting workshops focused on the art of filmmaking at the 2018 Monmouth Teen Arts Festival. These workshops are catered towards teenage aspiring artists, providing them with a peek behind the scenes of their favorite Hollywood movies.

WHEN: Thursday, March 15, and Friday, March 16
WHERE:
Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, NJ.

“With Monmouth Arts’ support, we continue to raise the bar in educating teenage aspiring artists and creators with innovative workshops,” said Nicholas Marchese, President & Director of Monmouth Film Festival. “Our second year of hosting this educational workshop further underscores our mission to deliver a welcoming environment for young filmmakers to explore their craft and hear valuable insight from industry professionals.”

Inside Two River - The Quiet Man

On Monday, March 19, Monmouth Film Festival Two River Theater are partnering for the second time this year for a special film screening, panel discussion, and question and answer session of John Ford’s The Quiet Man. This is done as part of the theater’s Inside Two River program - a series of arts & humanities events, specially curated for an upcoming stage production of theirs. The screening is taking place in advance of Two River Theater’s production of Dancing at Lughnasa, taking the stage in April 2018. The previous Inside Two River screening was of Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt in conjunction with Two River’s production of Thornton Wilder’s The Bridge of San Luis Rey.

“Monmouth Film Festival and Two River Theater are focused on creating an engaging experience experience that fans of film, theatre, and the arts will not get anywhere else,” said Marchese. “By working together, we’re connecting the diverse arts communities in new and different ways.”

Monmouth Film 360

In an effort to expand their year-round mission to educate and engage filmmakers and moviegoers alike, Monmouth Film Festival is partnering with the Holmdel Public Library System for a new venture - Monmouth Film 360. The free monthly program will showcase films adapted from works of literature, followed by a discussion and workshop, and will cater to film lovers of all ages. The series is set to begin in April at the Holmdel Public Library, which has recently relocated to the state-of-the-art Bell Works complex in Holmdel, NJ.
