Get Ready for the the 4th Annual Nassau Film Festival! 

May 17, 18, 19 & 20, 2018

 A 4-Day Long Celebration of Short Films From Around the Globe

Mark Your Calendars! The fourth Annual Nassau Film Festival returns to the arts council of Princeton on May 17-18 and to the Garden Theatre (160 Nassau Street) on Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20. the events are free of charge and open to the public.

Lew Goldstein got the idea to start the festival after noticing a gap in the Princeton film scene. “I felt there was a void for individuals who focused on short documentaries and short films. These are all remarkable films that deserve to be seen,” he says.

Last year’s Festival received approximately 336 submissions. It's anticipated that this number will grow exponentially, as films continue to be submitted by students and non-students from all over the world. “The response was so overwhelming that we decided to make it a 4-day event” says Goldstein. 

The NFF highlights extraordinary independent films from filmmakers representing countries in six continents. Additionally, films from the USA and regional and local filmmakers are highlighted.
