This year’s Fiction Film Competition features are Aftersun, directed by Charlotte Wells, Corsage, directed by Marie Kreutzer, EO, directed by Jerzy Skolimowski, Holy Spider, directed by Ali Abbasi, and R.M.N, directed by Cristian Mungiu.

Each year, the Montclair Film Festival honors the legacy of New York Times reporter and longtime Montclair resident David Carr by presenting an award to an outstanding film that honors Mr. Carr’s passion for the truth and his commitment to great journalism. This year, The David Carr Award for Truth in Filmmaking is awarded to She Said, directed by Maria Schrader. By granting this award, the festival honors She Said’s deeply affecting look at how the meticulous process of great reporting can create seismic change by giving voice to those who seek to challenge the powerful.
