ABOUT US: The Newark Short Film Awards was founded by filmmaker Matt Williams to serve dual purposes. The first was to empower up and coming filmmakers, actors, and artists to display their work to a public audience and industry professionals. The second objective is to host a Day of Creativity by providing art, filmmaking and improvisation workshops, networking events, entertainment, and an overall support system for the community of actors, composer, directors, students, and industry professionals.
