Here comes the SOMA Film Festival, a new three day experience being held February 12-14, 2016 at the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC). Weekend passes for the Festival are only $45-$55 and are on-sale now at www.SOPACnow.org/soma-film-festival. Long & short form narrative and documentary will be shown and an opening reception is to take place Friday, February 12 where audiences will be able to mingle with their fellow film-lovers, as well as film industry professionals. The fest is sponsored by Barnabas Health.
Festival Founder, Maplewood resident, Matthew Smollon, knows there are many entertainment professionals in Maplewood and South Orange so it seemed like an ideal place, given its proximity to New York City, and its rich cultural tradition. “Creating a film festival seemed like an organic next step for these communities” said SOMA Festival Founder, and Maplewood resident Matthew Smollon. “I am confident in the quality of innovative and exciting independent films that will be shown, and that our first year will prove successful and become a long standing tradition for years to come.”
Smollon assembled an advisory committee of actor John Michael Higgins, writer/director Steven Kampmann, President of Grasshopper Films Ryan Krivoshey, documentary filmmaker Ben Niles, actress Christianne Noll and NY Latino Film Festival Director Elizabeth Gardner Potter. They have helped to shape the Film Festival in its inaugural year and evaluate submissions, and the final list of selected films will be available in January. Smollon is creating many exciting opportunities during the course of the Festival for discussion between film artists and audiences.
The films will be screened in the intimate 438 seat-theatre at SOPAC, noted for both its excellent sound design and comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at www.SOPACnow.org or by calling (973) 313-2787. More information is available at www.SOMAfilmfestival.com. The Festival is still taking submissions and filmmakers should visit www.filmfreeway.com for further information.

It’s a subscription screening series of eight original and provocative feature films and a Q&A discussion with a distinguished guest(s) (critic and/or professor and/or talent from the film). Stephen Whitty, the Star Ledger film critic and Chair of the New York Film Critics Circle will be involved. The films are a mix of independent, foreign-language, non-fiction, and mainstream, and all will hopefully be on your radar when ultimately released in theaters.
