On the event page they write, "This past year, Montclair Film pivoted and found fresh ways to fulfill our mission. We are nimble, we are resilient, and we’ve been spending wisely. To keep our audiences safe and films rolling, we built a new Virtual Cinema for screenings, panels, and conversations. We created the Carpool Theater series and shifted film education and community storytelling programs online. And, we are proud to report we kept our full-time staff employed.
"Since the beginning, Montclair Film’s role—our passion—has been to build community, to strengthen bonds between neighbors, to showcase the art of film and storytelling, and to encourage all of us to find ways to 'Discover Together.' Togetherness is the soul of our organization. We create together. We face challenges together. We overcome together. We know we are stronger when we’re together.
"Our next chapter promises to bring us all even closer together, and we want to make sure you are a part of Montclair Film’s bright future. We hope you will join us on May 7th, at this very special virtual fundraising event as we reflect on some inspiring, eye-opening, and laugh-out-loud moments from our first ten years. You won’t want to miss it!
"Thank you for being part of our first celebrated decade. Montclair Film is well positioned to continue to succeed with a dynamic program that speaks to the wonderful diversity of our community, and we can’t wait to share our exciting plans for the future."
