Where Amazing Movies Come Together

AMC is home to many movie festivals across the country. We’re proud to bring people together for the common goal of celebrating great films.

Are you looking to host a film festival at AMC? We'd love to hear about it. Tell us more.


March 7 - May 10, 2016 / AMC Mountainside & AMC Monmouth Mall / Mountainside & Eatontown, NJ

Arthouse Film Festival has hosted 1,715 movie premieres with 1,094 live guest appearances over the past 25 years. Oscar winners and nominees Danny Aiello, Alan Arkin, James Cromwell, Frank Darabont, Jesse Eisenberg, Ethan Hawke, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Melissa Leo, Viggo Mortensen, Chazz Palminteri, John Sayles, Aaron Sorkin, Fisher Stevens and David Strathairn have joined Dylan Baker, Jim Breuer, Famke Janssen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Derek Luke, Mary Stuart Masterson, David Morse, Connie Nielsen, Joe Pantoliano and Kevin Smith as guest speakers.

If you are not one of the thousands of New Jersey film buffs who have attended, just imagine seeing a festival-winning gem before release to the public, then the lights come up, and there in front of you are the creators of the film, ready to answer questions and discuss their work. The program will always be flexible in order to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Wonderful surprises and fantastic celebrities can pop up out of nowhere, so we try to keep the schedule as fluid as possible.

Last fall, we premiered BROOKLYN, ROOM, MUSTANG, MACBETH, THE CLUB and many more outstanding films which went on to receive numerous awards.
