Please watch our new Film Society of Summit video to learn more about our mission.

Summit, NJ's non-profit film organization celebrates the best in American and international cinema.


With a year-round program, The Film Society of Summit presents screenings of contemporary domestic and international films, many with special guests attending for post screening Q & A's.

In 2021-2022, we begin our 10th season offering a carefully selected slate of community-building film programming and educational engagement through film. 

Our unique programs attract a passionate community of film lovers and filmmakers. We push for the future of cinema with quality films that offer fresh voices and a global view, that transform viewers & offer a new lens on the human condition. 


Film screenings are followed by discussion,

a combination, we find, that promotes broader cultural understanding, inspires curiosity and enhances awareness of shared stories and values across generations, religions, ethnicities and borders through the power of cinema.


The Film Society of Summit is especially concerned with providing film-goers and cineastes the opportunity to see works that would otherwise not screen in our community.
