Montclair Underdog Film Festival


While anyone can watch the actual Oscars, the Montclair Underdog Film Festival is the only outlet in NJ for viewing all 15 nominated short films (live action, animated, documentary) in their entirety before the award telecast.

This Sunday, 2/20 on the campus of Montclair State University, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. these lesser viewed cinematic gems will be screened, along with the Oscar nominated feature documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop” — an unusual story about a secretive global graffiti artist and the man who sought to film him.

The Montclair Underdog Film Festival is produced in cooperation with the Montclair State University Film Forum and a group of dedicated film, TV and communication professionals from Montclair and the surrounding community.
