About the Festival:

An all-volunteer effort, FilmOneFest celebrates film-makers and story-tellers, audience and place.  For the seventh year, see the best and most original super short films and videos (under 2 mins) from around the world at this unique festival in Atlantic Highlands NJ, “the jewel of the bayshore.” FilmOneFest captures the new and exciting creative image-making happening in homes, art collectives, schools, colleges, and professional studios, appearing online and in screening rooms everywhere.  Enjoy our new music festival starting at 5:00 pm with local student bands playing till the launch of the new FilmYoungFest, a mini film festival dedicated to student films until the main musical act introduces the films at 9:00 pm.

It is truly a snap-shot of what is happening right now in our contemporary, borderless world of digital image and action. FilmOneFest is a production of the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council:
