About this Event
The Queen City Film Festival, a Nonstop Show Group Production, is a community centered film festival based in the historic city of Plainfield, New Jersey; a central jersey hub for culture, cuisine, music, art and now film.Located 25 miles southwest of Tribeca in lower Manhattan, Plainfield is set with two train stations along the NJ Transit Raritan Valley Line and is a quick easy commute from the city.With tree-lined streets and Victorian homes set against a unique urban landscape, the city is a perfect location for the festival, which will attract hundreds of cinephiles to the city for two days of movies, workshops, networking and vendor opportunities, parties and an awards ceremony.
Additionally, community partners like restaurants, shops, air b&b stewards and businesses will benefit from the influx of visitors to the city.The festival, now in its second year started out as a pop-up short film showcase featuring both Plainfield filmmakers as well as films produced in the city. The brainchild of city native, film and television production veteran Lamar David Mackson, the festival is aimed at providing a space for the disenfranchised independent filmmakers whose work has transcended the challenges of independent filmmaking.
2018’s lineup included films from Writer Okema T. Moore, Director Patrick Coker as well as renowned novelist and Plainfield’s own, JM Benjamin.2019 promises to crank the action up a notch with an expanded two day schedule, which will include film production workshops, extended community mentor outreach, a network luncheon, world premiere screenings, more genres, more screenings, more Q&A’s, a world class opening night party and an awards ceremony at the newly constructed Cinemark Theaters Watchung located in neighboring Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
