The Jersey City International Television Film Festival was formed in 2013 by Craig & Maureen Goletz along with filmmakers and entertainment entrepreneurs Michael Billy and Jarl Haugedal to provide filmmakers, independent artists and the community with opportunities to discover support independent film and television from around the world. The Festival is dedicated to fostering a better understanding between cultures and to making a positive contribution to the art form of the moving image.
The Jersey City International Television and Film Festival provides the community with a network of programs and opportunities to foster education and real time experience in the field of television and film through workshops, seminars, markets and events. In keeping with Mayor Steven Fulop’s vision of job creation for all our citizens, through the growing entertainment business in Jersey City, JCITFF is committed to offering year round programming to enrich, inspire, educate and connect our student community so that they have the tools to enter the professional world. In partnership with NJCU, JCITFF will bring established individuals from all aspects of the entertainment business to share their experience and to impart their knowledge.
