The 5th Annual Newark International Film Festival (NIFF) is set for Sept. 9 through 13. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be entirely streaming and patrons can enjoy the festival from home.

The Opening Night reception will be a Red Carpet VIP event for the Newark Dignitaries, Sponsors, Celebrities and Partners. The event will be hosted by the Festival committee and the celebrity ambassador. There will also be an awards presentation highlighting the best films.

NIFF was established to educate and train young people in urban communities about the many facets of the film industry. Since its founding, they have brought agents, managers, producers, and industry executives looking for clients and content to Newark and promoted the city as a premier filming destination.

There is also a three-day screening event taking place at Newark’s Military Park where movie goers are invited to view three movies by local filmmakers. The screenings will take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
