Montclair State Alumna Lorene Scafaria Returns to Campus to Premiere Directorial Debut

Film Screening and Q&A: "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World"

Montclair State University and Montclair Film Festival present a premiere screening of Seeking a Friend at the End of the World, a new comedy starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, directed by Montclair State alumna Lorene Scafaria.

The screening event will take place Thursday, June 21, at 7:00 p.m. at the Alexander Kasser Theater, Montclair State University.  Following the film, there will be a Q&A with Scafaria and MFF artistic director Thom Powers.

Taking audiences on a humorous, moving, and intimate journey against an epic backdrop of Earth’s final days, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is set in a too-near future where time at once stands still and is slipping away forever, the writer/director explores what people will do and how they will feel when humanity’s end is near.
