Paterson Falls Film Festival


Have you ever wanted to experience the magic of the Sundance Film Festival or Cannes?  Well, now is your chance…right here in New Jersey!

Paterson is playing host to the Paterson Falls Film Festival on June 14 and 15.  The film festival will feature over 40 films and documentaries at the Fabian 8 inside the Center City Mall and at Ivanhoe Artists Mosaic.

#HipNJ’s Gina Cerniglia chatted with Paterson Falls Film Festival Creative Director, Tazio Ruffilo, about bringing attention to the arts of Paterson.

“There is untapped talent in New Jersey, especially here in Paterson, and I wanted to create an outlet to showcase that,” explained Taz.

One of the standout films from last year’s fest was “Jigsaw”, written and directed by recently-retired Montclair State University professor Suzanne Trauth.  “Jigsaw” is about a middle-aged women that moves to Las Vegas to discover her purpose in life, and Suzanne incorporated her love of jigsaw puzzles into the plot.  #HipNJ spoke to Suzanne about her award-nominated short.

“Seeing my film on the big screen was indescribable,” Suzanne gushed.

For this year’s event, a part of the proceeds will go to local non-profit organizations that seek to benefit the arts in Paterson.
