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.
The Film Society of Summit was founded as a community-based art cinema in 2012, with the mission to engage and entertain the community through the art of film by showcasing informative, educational, thought-provoking and inspiring films – films that enrich our lives, engage our minds, promote diversity and build community.
In 2022-2023, we begin our 11th 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.
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 be seen in our community.
