APMFF will benefit the underserved children in Asbury Park, one of the most challenged youth communities in the country, by providing music education, instruments and social connection opportunities.  Funds raised through APMFF will specifically support three programs including The Hope Academy, The Hip Hop Institute and The Asbury Park Summer Recreation Music Camp.

"The Asbury Park Music & Film Festival has become one of the most anticipated events on the calendar for enthusiasts of live music and movies," said Tom Bernard, Co-President, Sony Pictures Classics. "The Festival's commitment throughout the weekend goes way beyond the stage and screen. Our proudest accomplishment is the work we do to benefit the less privileged children from the city we love, Asbury Park."

In its first four years, the Festival has already welcomed many music and film heavyweights to the stage including Bruce Springsteen, Danny DeVito, Stevie Van Zandt, Wyclef Jean, Don Cheadle, Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Warren Haynes, Michael Franti and many more.

The Festival's Board of Advisors includes some of the most powerful figures in the film and music industries led by Tom Bernard (Sony Pictures Classics), Danny Clinch (Director & Photographer) and Tom Donovan (Gannett New Jersey). In addition, Adam Block (Music Industry Executive), Josh Braun (Submarine Entertainment), Jim Dowd (NJ Devils Stanley Cup Champion), Eric Eisner (Double E Pictures), Denis Gallagher (Charliewood Pictures), Tom Jones (Halo Group), Justin Kreutzmann (Filmmaker), Annie McDonough (Falco Ink), Jeff Rosen (Manager, Bob Dylan), Rich Russo ("Anything, Anything" Radio), Bob Santelli (Grammy Museum), Shelli Sonstein (Q104.3/iHeart Media) and Michael Uslan (Film/TV Producer) serve as  members of the Board.
