Martin Scorsese To Be Honored At This Falls Montclair Film Festival, Take Part In Onstage Talk With Fest Backer Stephen Colbert

EXCLUSIVE: Martin Scorsese will receive a filmmaker tribute honor at next month’s Montclair Film Festival and also take part in an onstage interview with major fest backer Stephen Colbert.

The October 27 conversation will touch on the director’s latest project, Killers of the Flower Moon, which will be released theatrically on October 20 by Apple and Paramount, plus Scorsese’s entire six-decade career. Killers, Scorsese’s 27th narrative feature film as a director, had its world premiere in Cannes last May.

As a resident of Montclair, a New Jersey suburb of New York City where a number of media and entertainment pros make their homes, Colbert has been a longtime advocate of the festival. His wife, Evie Colbert, is its president, and Colbert convenes annual sit-downs with notable figures at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark as well as making other appearances. While it remains largely a Northeast regional fest, Montclair is scaling up its ambitions, moving into the fall awards corridor from the spring and extending its length. This year’s edition runs from October 20 to 29.

Proceeds from the Scorsese-Colbert talk will benefit Montclair Film. The non-profit arts organization puts on the fest; owns and operates Montclair’s six-screen art house cinema The Clairidge; and provides film education, storytelling and community programs throughout New Jersey.

“Over the course of his career as a filmmaker, preservation advocate, and film historian, Martin Scorsese has made an unparalleled impact on the art of cinema” said Tom Hall, Co-Head and Artistic Director of Montclair Film. “To honor him with our festival’s 2023 Filmmaker Tribute is an absolute thrill, and we look forward to a delightful, celebratory evening of stories and conversation hosted by Stephen Colbert.”
