The party will have an Oscar theme and attendees can walk the Red Carpet

and be interviewed and photographed. Attendees are asked to dress formally as if they are attending the Academy Awards, or they can come dressed as their favorite character from an Oscar-nominated movie, past or present. However, you can dress as you please as well. Prizes will be awarded for best costume and for the winners of Oscar trivia contests. Whether you are a fan of La La Land, Manchester by the Sea or an old movie buff, the party will give you an opportunity to talk movies and meet your neighbors. 
Food served will include hot and cold appetizers, and a pasta station, hot beverages and dessert. The cost is $50 per person.

Broad Street, Ridgewood, NJ, 07450. For questions please call: (201) 493-9911 or email

The three-day festival features local, national and international films.  The first night is free, and then tickets cost $10 per day.
