Join Us July 18 for FilmOneFest 2020!


FilmOneFest (a production of the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council) is the Jersey Shore’s preeminent showcase for all forms of short films under two minutes in  length. The festival is a free, summertime seaside screening in the town of Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey.  Its goal is to raise awareness of the arts, as well as the community of Atlantic Highlands. FilmOneFest also promotes local and international filmmaking through the use of new media and technology, educational activities and screenings, and supports its local food bank.

The Atlantic Highlands Arts Council is comprised of a team of dedicated volunteers who include professional artists, educators, business leaders and community organizers. We are a volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization whose mission is to strengthen community through the arts. Our primary function is to develop and execute events and arts related activities for the benefit of our community.

FilmOneFest 2019

In 2019,  record high temperatures couldn’t deter the crowds who gathered for the 11th Annual FilmOneFest held at the Atlantic Highlands Marina. More than 1,000 viewers attended to view a total of 43 films  selected from a field of 2,350 submissions from over 100 countries.  

The event kicked off on a high note at 6:00 p.m. with musical entertainment from local bands Double A, Zoochie, and headliner Cranston Dean Band. 

New this year were interstitials created for the event by locals "The Bagsville Initiative" and collaboration with 5-Second Films.
