Black Maria Film Festival’s Hudson County Movie Tour - Hoboken Historical Museum, Hoboken, NJ - Program 4 - Wednesday June 5, 2019 - 7:00PM - Selected shorts from the Black Maria collection
The films that become the centerpiece of the Black Maria Film Festival honor the vision of Thomas Edison, New Jersey inventor and creator of the motion picture. It was his New Jersey studio, the world’s first, which he called the “Black Maria” from which we take our name. The Festival reaches out to diverse audiences in diverse settings including universities, museums, libraries, community organizations, and arts venues. The cutting edge, cross-genre work that makes up the Festival’s touring program, has been traveling across the country every year for decades.
