Storytelling is an art form as old as time. Even before we painted pictures on the walls of caves, we sat around the campfire and told stories. The ones who were able to captivate us with a little drama, pathos, comedy and insight, were the ones we relied on to keep our histories and explain our world. Filmmaking is an advanced form of storytelling where you take sight and sound, and project a world onto a screen that doesn’t exist anywhere else. The short film is a glimpse into that world and not the entire telling, but a mere slice of it. 

CUT International Short Film Festival is destined to become the premier festival in New Jersey for short form films. Located in a colonial-era enclave established in the early part of the 18th century, the City of Millville hosts a proper main drag known as High Street. Featuring a beautifully restored theater, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores, art galleries and barber shops, Millville harkens back to different time in the American experience. 

CUT was founded to celebrate storytelling in the medium of motion pictures but limited to short stories. The short film, like the documentary, has become a great way for a larger group of people to tell their stories. Not reliant on huge budgets, or massive crews, a small group of talented creatives can cra a tale of resonance and authenticity. Our goal is to celebrate those stories and give them a venue to shine.

artists, working in many different styles and media. Nearly all the Goshen artists settled
there without knowledge of the others. Over the years, they have come to know one
another, collaborate on occasion and fully appreciate the diversity of their personalities
and pursuits. The artists tell their story in A Rising Tide: The Artists of Goshen.

Live performance

Regular jam sessions and concert events at artist Stan Sperlak’s Crow Creek Farm in
Goshen, N.J. led to new collaborations and an album: Songs from the Barn. Some of
the musicians behind that project will perform live, including Marnie Bevin Lengle, Dan
Barry and MQ Murphy.

ArtC presents
The Art Spirit: The Story of Pat Witt & the Barn Studio of Art & Shattered: Portrait of a Glass Factory (documentaries)

THE ART SPIRIT: The Story of Pat Witt & the Barn Studio of Art (re-edited premiere):
ArtC’s original and acclaimed documentary about Millville’s innovative and talented artist and teacher Pat Witt and her Barn Studio of Art has been enjoyed by tens of thousands the last six years. This re-edited version will appeal to those who saw the original and those non-Barnies interested in learning more about this fascinating woman and her school of art.

SHATTERED: Portrait of a Glass Factory (premiere):
It’s been over twenty years since many of the glass factories in Millville shut down. Since then, very few people have been given permission to go inside these once thriving hubs of production. Fine art photographers Tom Holding and Dave Woeller were allowed inside to produce photos that are both striking and disturbing. ArtC’s videographer Bill Horin was with them for one of their excursions into the abandoned plants of Wheaton Glass as they worked their magic. The resulting documentary is a showcase for their art and a glimpse into the area’s glass industry.
