Take in a Film

Do you like classic films? Indie flicks? International cinema? Did you know there is a film festival that takes place on the Rutgers campus?  The Rutgers Film Co-op/New Jersey Media Arts Center, founded in 1982 by Albert G. Nigrin, is supported, in part, by Educational Enrichment. The Rutgers Film Co-op/NJMAC is committed to exposing students and the broader public to classic, independent, and international films and bringing the filmmakers, writers, and actors to the screenings.

The Rutgers Film Co-op/New Jersey Media Arts Center screens over 100 films per year on the Rutgers campus.  During the 2013-2014 academic year, more than 6,000 undergraduate students attended Rutgers Film Co-op/NJMAC films.  The Rutgers Film Co-op/New Jersey Media Arts Center (NJMAC) is screening films throughout the academic year. Some of the films screened this fall included Lies I told My Little Sister directed by William J. Stribling, which was the winner of the 2014 New Jersey International Film Festival Best Feature Film, as well as Rye Coalition: The Story of Hard Luck 5 directed by Jenni Matz, which was the winner of the 2014 New Jersey International Film Festival Best Documentary Film.

In February, the Rutgers Film Co-op/New Jersey Media Arts Center will bring us the International U.S. Super 8 Film + Video Festival that will feature works by independent filmmakers from the United Stated and across the world.  A panel of filmmakers, students, and media professionals will vote for the best films.  The audience will even participate in choosing the “Audience Choice Prize.”
