Montclair Film Festival Storytelling Studio

Slam My Story!

Originally recorded on March 18, 2018 at Cinema505, Slam My Story! is an ongoing series from Montclair Film Education, giving high school students an opportunity to share their own individual stories.

Everyone has a unique story to tell. Slam My Story! gives high school students an opportunity to share their own individual story and/or college essay. The top performers from the March 18th event will go on to perform LIVE at Montclair Film’s adult StorySlam on Saturday, April 28th as part of the Montclair Film Festival.

Congratulations to our incredible group of storytellers!
