Now accepting Submissions for 2019

Located in picturesque downtown Ridgewood, NJ. Just a train ride from Manhattan.

The Ridgewood Guild Film Festival is home to the premieres of many international, national and local films, student films, shorts, features, animation, music videos, webseries and documentaries.  Held at three venues within walking distance of one another, the main theater is the classic art deco Ridgewood Bowtie Cinema.  We have entertained such celebrities as Danny Aiello, Alysia Reiner, Martha Byrne, Christian Borle, Chris Mann and many others over our 7 years. With our low ticket prices, ample seating and generous selection of fine restaurants and shops surrounding the theater, our Festival is sure to become a movie goer's anticipated destination each year.
