Asbury Park, New Jersey - USA      March 28 to March 31, 2019


The 17th Annual Garden State Film Festival (GSFF), a globally recognized event that offers a thrilling platform on which to display and celebrate extraordinary talents. With competitive categories embracing documentary, animated, narrative, and short films - as well as music videos, commercials, trailers, movie music track competition with student categories in all - GSFF is truly a filmmaker’s film festival with unrestricted access to industry pros and audience. 


Unfolding in the legendary entertainment resort, Asbury Park, GSFF offers practical and career-enhancing panels on subjects such as film financing and independent film distribution. Each panel is led by industry experts with track records of success and limitless knowledge to share. GSFF's competitive categories for college students, graduate students, high school students and younger ensure that anyone with talent and drive can find a place at this festival. As Asbury Park strives to engage the community GSFF will curate a selection of films that are suitable for all ages and seek a wide variety of films to screen to their mutli-generational audience.


In 2018, the festival featured 246 films from 22 countries, an open talent casting call, panel discussions, and opening and closing ceremonies with multiple appearances by celebrities and honorees. Celebrities that have lent their support include Ed Asner, Bebe Neuwirth, Laura Dern, Glenn Close, Brian Dennehy among others. 



The artistic philosophy of the Garden State Film Festival is rooted in the celebration of the independent film genre and the creation of a forum where local and other independent filmmakers can exhibit their work. It was also created to pay tribute to New Jersey’s legacy as the birthplace of the American film making industry in Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park laboratories where he invented the first film cameras and projectors, to Fort Lee, where the original studios were founded.



GSFF has lead the way in recognizing music composition in film and music's role in the cinematic arts. Original music track submissions (one track per entry) are welcome in the Movie Music Competition. The Festival recognizes composers, artists and producers of scores, soundtracks and theme songs judged solely on their own merit..
