First Annual East Brunswick Indie Film Festival

The E.B Indie Film Festival founders Emily Eng and Kevin Lin both met at Rutgers
University Mason Gross School of the Arts when they were studying for Digital
Filmmaking back in 2016. After several years of working alongside each others
film projects they realized the little opportunities for young artists to showcase
their work in their hometown of East Brunswick. They recognized the abundance
of talent located in the center of New Jersey that encouraged them to start this
film festival and make a space for filmmakers and audience members.

E.B. Indie Film Festival aims to encourage and showcase emerging filmmakers in the center of New Jersey. We are seeking independent student work from a variety of genres that explores new perspectives.

Our goal is to provide a professional and educational space for young filmmakers to have the opportunity to connect, inspire and grow with one another.


➢E.B Indie is a student film festival hosted in East Brunswick, New Jersey
where many young filmmakers can gather and connect with one another.

➢ The event will be a drive-in movie theater where many could watch student
short films in the comfort of their own space. Those unable to attend
in-person will also have the ability to stream the live event on Facebook
and other media outlets.

➢ EB Indie will showcase the top 15 short films and will provide awards to
the following: Best Short Film, Best Directing, Best Cinematography, Best
Sound, Best Editing, Best Acting and Audience Choice

➢ We will showcase narrative short films, animated short films, documentary
short films and music videos

August 13 - 14, 2021

The fund that we raise for the first annual EBIFF will be used for things such as the facilities, projector, staff, awards, live broadcasting, marketing, and awards!

With your support, we want to make the best film festival possible that will encourage the future of young aspiring creatives in the New Jersey area. We truly want to make this the best film festival we can possibly make!
