Lillias WhiteWhat do you do after two incredibly successful TIFF galas? You plan another one! This year, the gala will feature two Broadway stars. Tony winner Lillias White and Grammy winner Billy Stritch will cross the GW Bridge, just weeks after another critically acclaimed performance at 54 Below ("Broadway's Supper Club"), to make beautiful music in Teaneck. It all begins with light refreshments at 8 p.m., Saturday, November 8, when Temple Emeth, 1666 Windsor Road, Teaneck, will be turned into a beautiful night spot. Those who contribute $50 or more, in advance will receive two invitations. The price at the door will be $35 per person.

The Program
Once again, independent features, shorts, and documentaries will be screened. For children, the Academy Award nominated Ernest and Celestine, a favorite with kids and adults will be screened in addition to the return of the Kid Flix Mix, hosted by Bob McGrath.

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.
TIFF Receives 2014 Matthew Feldman Award

The Teaneck International Film Festival was the 2014 recipient of the Matthew Feldman Award, presented annually by the Teaneck Council's Advisory Board on Community Relations "to an individual or group who best exemplifies efforts to improve community relations in Teaneck." A plaque was presented to executive director Jeremy Lentz and members of the TIFF committee at the Teaneck Council meeting on June 24. State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg also presented the committee with a proclamation from the State in recognition of the festival's efforts and accomplishments.

Earlier this year, the Martin Luther King Birthday Observance Committee presented TIFF with the Lee Reid Award, presented in honor of founding Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Palisades. TIFF was honored at the annual Martin Luther King commemoration for its strong commitment to working for racial and social justice.
