Montclair State’s own Beverly Peterson is currently working on two documentaries: one is a project about the devastating impact of workplace bullying and, the other, about Maria Martin's groundbreaking work to train indigenous Mayan journalists in Guatemala who risk their lives to link their remote communities to the global dialogue. She’ll tell us about shooting in Guatemala and having her documentaries broadcast internationally, and screened at major festivals including; HBO, PBS The Sundance Channel, The Sundance Film Festival, Human Rights Watch, Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Walker Art Center, The Warhol Museum, and The Kitchen!
Film Forum, sponsored by the Filmmaking Program in the College of the Arts, is a weekly program for Montclair State students and the public. The program features contemporary filmmakers who come to speak about their work and profession in an open forum that invites audience members to ask questions and hear personalized inside stories from some of the most innovative filmmakers in the region. Admission is free.
