As part of New York's legendary CMJ Music Marathon, one of the world's largest and longest running new music festivals, the 15th Annual CMJ Film Festival promises to be our most ambitious thus far. Having gained a reputation over the past 14 years for providing CMJ and New York audiences with the very best in breakthrough independent cinema, the festival also features advance screenings and premieres of high profile, cutting-edge films -- such as the box office smashes Pulp Fiction, Boogie Nights, Fight Club, Walk The Line, and Borat, and 2008’s Zack and Miri Make a Porno. We have a rich tradition of bringing artists and filmmakers into direct contact with CMJ's enthusiastic crowds. Past festivals featured face-to-face sessions with leading filmmakers such as David Cronenberg, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Moore, Harmony Korine, Wim Wenders, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Kevin Smith.

Selected films are eligible for the CMJ09 Film Festival Audience Award in each of four categories: Narrative Feature Film, Documentary Feature Film, Narrative Short Film, and Documentary Short Film. Also be sure and check out CMJ's first ever Film Festival Trailer Competition.

The CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival will take place from October 20 - 24, and will be headquartered in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, with screening venues throughout New York City. With last year's event bringing in over 120,000 participants, we expect this year's audience draws to be our largest to date!
