Speaker Series

The Film Forum Speaker Series features weekly visits of filmmakers who come to speak about their work and profession. The series, open to both University students and the general public, welcomes audience questions while being a unique forum to hear inside stories from some of the most innovative filmmakers working in the field today. The Film Institute at Montclair State is maintaining a busy schedule of programs and screenings.

Topical new films, introduced and discussed by their creators, will be made available for viewing prior to a discussion via Zoom on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m.

Events are free and open to the public.
