In The Cut Film Fest offers a quality film festival designed to bring together filmmakers and film enthusiasts.

In our ever changing landscape, we will have both a live film festival as well as an online version. This will allow filmmakers and film enthusiasts from all around the world, to be able to participate, without having to travel. Those films marked as "semi-finalists" will screen in our online version, then the "finalists" will also screen in the live version of the festival.
Our History. We have worked with film festivals in the New Jersey and New York area for years, developing and harnessing ideas of how to bring an enjoyable festival experience to all. Our live event will be held in Bloomfield, NJ.

    It was a great honor to have our film, "Trucked!", included in this year's In the Cut Film Festival. Excellent communication with the directors, Chris Cullen and Steve Rogers. The icing on the cake was the award for Best (Plot) Twist.

    In The Cut Film Festival did a wonderful job hosting virtual and live screenings. It was an honor to have my short film, “The Rainy Day,” be included in this year’s program.

    In The Cut Film Festival was fantastic. It was well run and we were happy to have several films selected. We were honored to have our film 'Play Date' win for Best Twist and our film 'You're It' win for Best Horror Comedy. We already submitted to their next festival and encourage others to do the same.
