Film Institute Features Classics and Filmmakers

In its plush new theater, The Film Institute at Montclair State has become the go-to place to catch – and talk about – movies, from its Films and Filmmakers series to its Friday Night Frights series to its Sundays with Scorsese or Sundays with Hitchcock this year.

For the latter, film critic Stephen Whitty hosted matinee screenings of Hollywood classics, spotlighting Martin Scorsese’s New York neighborhoods and revealing Alfred Hitchcock’s secrets. Friday Night Frights officially launched the U.S. premiere of the critically acclaimed horror film, The Ritual. Taking movie buffs backstage, the Films and Filmmakers and Dialogue with the Screenwriter programs bring to campus some of the most innovative talents working today.
