TIFF Receives 2014 Matthew Feldman Award
The Teaneck International Film Festival was the 2014 recipient of the Matthew Feldman Award. Since 1995, the award has been presented annually "to an individual or group who best exemplifies efforts to improve community relations in Teaneck."

Nominations had been submitted to the Township Council's Advisory Board on Community Relations which presented a plaque to TIFF executive director Jeremy Lentz and members of the TIFF committee at the Township Council meeting on June 24. State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg was at the meeting to present the committee with a proclamation from the State in recognition of the festival's efforts and accomplishments.

The Program
The list is growing: a wonderful program of independent features, shorts, and documentaries is planned. This year, there will be additional children's programming. Bob McGrath will again host NY International Film Festival Kid Flix Mix (ages 4-8, but older children love it too), and the Academy Award nominated Ernest and Celestine (based on the book), which is a favorite with kids and adults of all ages, will be shown. There will be a greater emphasis on women's issues, and WOW (Wise Older Women) will honor TIFF's perennial Red Carpet host, Sandi Klein (long an advocate of women's rights with the online/FDU radio blog, The 51% - Conversations with Creative Women). A little bit of Bollywood, fabulous films you might have missed in theaters, fascinating talkbacks, and of course, discussions/debates and, we hope, responses to our theme, Activism: Making Change.
