New Jersey Film Makers Lab

Express Newark, 54 Halsey Street Room 312 (Workshop 2)
Newark, NJ 07102
Thursday 10/26/17 , 6pm – 8pm

The New Jersey Film Makers Lab is a new and developing group. We believe that there is an enormous pool of film making talent in this area. Our goal is twofold: to provide a safe space where film makers receive feed back and support as they develop their work; and to assist film makers in their quest to develop as entrepreneurs, thus turning their passion for filmmaking into a viable business. Eventually, the lab hopes to cultivate a script to screen program, supporting a collaborative relationship with industry professionals who can work with filmmakers in bringing their work to audiences.
