ABOUT  THE  FESTIVAL

Date:  October 27 - 29

Location:  Bernardsville Cinema

Bernardsville sits at the very seat of the American Revolution. This quiet, historical town is the perfect location to celebrate this uniquely American art form. Motion Pictures.

It is with that spirit that the Bernardsville Cinema and FenceSitter Films has announced the first annual Bernardsville Film Festival. 

The goal is to bring movie lovers together to celebrate the future of cinema with four days of parties, award ceremonies, and most importantly, MOVIES!

The Bernardsville Film Festival will highlight a varied and diverse slate of films including:

 

-Feature Films

-Documentaries

 

-Shorts (narrative and documentary form)

-Exit 10 tract which will celebrate New Jersey filmmakers. 

In 1913, the Bernardsville Cinema opened its cavernous 500 seat theater and has been in continuous operation ever since. Originally named The Columbus Theater, it began as a vaudeville theater. In 1920, silent films replaced vaudeville acts until 1929 when "talkies" came in. In order to keep up with the changing times, the interior of the grand old theater was converted to a triplex theater in the early 1990's, yet the there has been little change to the exterior.

 

In 2020, the 110 year old building celebrated its 100th anniversary as a continuously run motion picture theater and remains one of the very few totally independent theater with no chain affiliation in operation in the United States.
