“The Cranford Film Festival is a celebration of creativity and the power of storytelling through film," said Cranford FOPHA President, Stephanie Levine. “The Cranford Film Festival not only showcases the best in short film, it also helps to raise funds for the performing arts students in our Cranford community.”
