😞 We don't have a program for this festival yet. Would you like to help us add it?
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 20, 2021
Unfortunately, we are again postponing our live event. We are working on ways to get your films seen virtually, but we realize there is no match for a live festival. With Covid regulations and recommendations constantly changing, the reported low attendance at indoor events, both locally and nationally, and caution on the part of the general public, we have made the difficult decision to postpone again.
Your patience is appreciated as we explore ways to bring your art to the public as well as plan a festival you and the community can attend and enjoy.
UPDATE: POSTPONED DUE TO COVID
We are pleased to announce that the Toms River Festival has been rescheduled to Friday October 1 - Sunday October 3, 2021 in downtown Toms River New Jersey.
New Jersey welcomes you to the inaugural Toms River Film Festival, taking place Friday through Sunday, October 2-4, 2020, in the Arts and Cultural District in historic Downtown Toms River by the Jersey Shore.
Our community celebrates environmentalism and sustainability and the Toms River Film Festival will give special consideration to films that focus on those topics. Our community also values education and the "maker" mindset and will be hosting workshops and presentations on the various hands-on aspects of filmmaking and film production.
The TRFF will also host a screenplay competition exclusively for NJ writers. The finalists will have excerpts from their scripts read live by local and professional actors.
The Toms River Film Festival will host parties each night of the event, a VIP lounge for filmmakers, workshops, table reads, Q&As following each screening, and plenty of opportunities to network with other filmmakers, producers, and industry professionals.
Come join us on the Jersey Shore, support independent cinema, and help foster the maker mindset!
