Our Mission

Montclair Underdog Film Festival showcases all the current year Oscar®-nominated short films because these "underdogs" of the Academy Awards are great films that audiences hardly ever get to see. Many filmmakers start their careers in shorts and we want to foster that appreciation and craft. The Festival also aims to bring together students, industry experts and the local community to share an experience that inspires, educates and entertains.
