In our April 2019 competition, 14 teams competed to create an original film incorporating a swing, a fly swatter and the line “I don’t think I can get this to fit!”  They had exactly 24 hours to create a film under two minutes long.


The community gathered on April 6, for a screening at Monmouth University’s Lauren K. Woods Theatre and voted for their favorite film. Judges Robert O’Connor, Victor Zak, and Nick Messina selected the top two films which were automatically accepted into FilmOneFest 2019.

First Place received a $250 Cash Prize. The People's Choice Award  received a $100 Prize.


Thank you to Monmouth University for their support and sponsorship of FilmOneFest.
