We Are…

History

Founded in 2010 by actor Bill Sorvino and a small group of dyed in the wool Jersey Cityites.  The renegade band of “old time Jersey City” residents set out on a mission to shine a light on Jersey City, New Jersey and to provide an equal platform to all filmmakers well known and otherwise.  Since that time,  Golden Door International Film Festival has anchored itself as a cultural focal point of Jersey City.

Autism Awareness

In addition to providing a forum for independent filmmakers, in 2014 we established a philanthropic arm dedicated to raising awareness about autism.  We are committed to screening  narratives and documentaries about autism from a variety of perspectives.  In particular we seek to offer autistic people a platform to share their stories.  We believe in the power of the arts, and especially film, to give a voice to those people who previously had none.  Along with our annual festival we host events throughout the year that provide a space for people to experience and learn about autism.  
GDIFF ’17

GDIFF is more than just a film festival.  It is a networking event, a learning repository, a hotbed of new talent and a host of generous galas and afterparties!
