Jersey City Popup Film Festival (JCPFF) is designed to be a fun relaxed film festival, offering quality independent films and networking opportunities.

We strive to create opportunities for networking with fellow filmmakers and actors before and after the screenings.

Each festival will have an after party and awards.

The films, selected by a committee, include features, shorts, music videos, webisodes, and documentaries.

Trophies will be given to Best Film, Best Actor, Best Actress.

5. Applicants may submit as many entries as they wish, as long as each entry has a separate entry form and fee.
