Named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the “25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” the Black Maria Film and Video Festival once again launches at New Jersey City University on Friday, February 4, 2011. The festival is known as an international juried competition and award tour of works from independent film and video makers.

The festival will be held at the Newark Museum the following day from 2-5pm. The event is free with suggested museum admission.

Last year, I attended the festival’s opening night at New Jersey City University and I fell in love with Joaquin Baldwin’s animated film,  Sebastian’s Voodoo. The film is about a voodoo doll who decides to fight back against a cruel master.

The festival will be held in venues across the country and internationally as well.

In October, The Black Maria Film + Video Festival’s 1st DVD was released featuring some of the best work from the past decade.

Earlier this year I attended the 29th Annual Black Maria Film Festival, which was named after Thomas Edison’s 1893 motion picture studio. His studio was the first motion picture studio in the world.   The festival is known as an international juried competition and award tour of works from independent film and video makers.

One short film stood out from the rest: Joaquin Baldwin’s animated film,  Sebastian’s Voodoo (2008). The film is about a voodoo doll who decides to take action against his master, who causes suffering among the dolls.
