Spring 2024 New Jersey Film Festival Winners Announced
 

The Competition component of the Spring 2024 New Jersey Film Festival has just concluded! Congratulations to the Winners! Overall, we had a good festival this year. We had a few screenings that were very well attended and a few with lower turnouts but that happens every festival for a variety of reasons. The in-person show attendance was much better than our Festival last Fall so that is encouraging but the online shows are what have kept us afloat financially since COVID broke in 2020. Average viewership per show was 82.
