Black Maria is a juried competition of short works in all genres, held annually. Following the Festival’s premier in February, it travels throughout the year and across the US and abroad.
For thirty-six years the Black Maria Film Festival has been celebrating creativity and innovation in the moving-image arts. The Festival’s home is NJ City University (NJCU) in New Jersey, not far from the site of Thomas Edison’s original film studio in West Orange, known as the “Black Maria.” Edison’s employees thought the studio’s boxy shape and black tarpaper covering resembled the so-called “black maria” police paddy wagons.
