PUTTING INDEPENDENT FILM FIRST
The SOMA Film Festival features and supports independent and emerging filmmakers. We believe that independent film can change the way people experience the world.
Set in the bucolic and artistically rich enclaves of Maplewood and South Orange, NJ, just thirty minutes from Manhattan, the three-year-old festival has the warmth and spirit of a small town mixed with the creative force of a big city.
The fourth annual SOMA Film Festival will take place March 20-24, 2019.
The film features five of the original Muppet performers coming together to discuss the creation of their iconic characters under the visionary leadership of Jim Henson. The stories are legendary and the film catches the innovation and the madness through conversation and archived video imagery.
