The 38th annual tour of the Black Maria Film Festival at Princeton University, will feature eight new short narrative and animated films, introduced by Festival Director Jane Steuerwald, and will focus on fiction-based storytelling through live-action and animation.
The Black Maria Film Festival attracts and nationally showcases the work of independent film and video makers. The festival is a project of the Thomas Edison Media Arts Consortium, an independent non-profit organization. The festival was founded in 1981 as a tribute to Thomas Edison’s development of the motion picture at his laboratory, dubbed the “Black Maria” film studio, the first in the world, in West Orange, New Jersey.
