We want audiences in southern New Jersey to be able to see outstanding films, and we want developing filmmakers to be able to get the information and training that they need. We do three things to make that happen. We run a Film Festival, we run a Film Camp for teenage filmmakers in June, and we show films in Cape May throughout the year. In 2016 we also ran a one-week Film School for adults. CLICK HERE to see the film we made.
THE CAPE MAY FILM SOCIETY IS COMMITTED TO MAKING ITS PROGRAMS AND FACILITIES ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE.
Our programs are made possible in part by a grant administered by the Cape May County Culture & Heritage Commission, from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
