Black Maria Film Festival

Since 1981, the Black Maria Film Festival, an international juried competition, has been celebrating and preserving the diversity, invention, and vitality of the short film. The Festival is named after Thomas Edison’s original West Orange film studio dubbed the “Black Maria” because of its resemblance to the black-box police paddy wagons of the same name.

Black Maria focuses on short films –  animation, documentary, experimental and narrative – including those, which address issues and struggles within contemporary society such as the environment, race and class, family, and issues of global concern. These exceptional films range from animation, comedy, and drama to the exploration of pure form in film and video and are the heart and soul of the festival.

The Festival advances and exhibits the work of diverse filmmakers from across the US and around the world. These artists often represent an under-served constituency who might not otherwise have the opportunity for live public exhibition nationwide or abroad.

More of the Black Maria Film Festival will be coming to the Bickford Theatre for the 2019-2020 season.

All seating is General Admission.

Tickets:
Museum Members: $12
Non-Members: $15
Students with valid ID: $10
