Tribute To Daniel Craig Hosted By Stephen Colbert at NJPAC In October

The Montclair Film, New Jersey's leading film non-profit, announced that The Montclair Film Festival will present its 2022 Tribute to Daniel Craig, star of the highly anticipated GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY with Stephen Colbert hosting Mr. Craig on stage at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in downtown Newark, NJ on Friday, October 28, 2022 at 8:00 PM. The pair will sit down for an unforgettable evening of conversation celebrating Mr. Craig's extraordinary career as one of the cinema's most distinguished actors.

Tickets for the Tribute to Daniel Craig hosted by Stephen Colbert are available now online at www.njpac.org and ticketmaster.com, by telephone at 1-888-GO-NJPAC (1-888-466-5722), and at the NJPAC Box Office at One Center Street in downtown Newark. More information about this event can also be found at montclairfilm.org.

All proceeds from this special evening will benefit Montclair Film, a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization that hosts the annual Montclair Film Festival (MFF), owns and operates Montclair's six-screen art house cinema The Clairidge, and provides year-round film education, storytelling, and community programs throughout New Jersey that serve tens of thousands of patrons each year.

The MFF's salute to Daniel Craig kicks off on October 21, 2022 when the 11th Annual Montclair Film Festival opens with Rian Johnson's GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY. In this follow up to KNIVES OUT, Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) travels to Greece to peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colorful suspects, featuring Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, and Madelyn Cline with Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista. Written and Directed by Rian Johnson, GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY will release globally on Netflix on December 23.

"We are thrilled to honor Daniel Craig at the Montclair Film Festival with our 2022 Tribute, and to share his work in Rian Johnson's uproarious new thriller GLASS ONION on Opening Night," said Tom Hall, Co-Head and Artistic Director of Montclair Film. "We look forward to welcoming Mr. Craig to the festival and to a fun, celebratory evening hosted by Stephen Colbert exploring Mr. Craig's unforgettable roles and his exceptional career."

"Our 2022 Tribute to Daniel Craig marks a new step forward for the Montclair Film Festival, bringing the festival to NJPAC for the first time," said Montclair Film Co-Head and Executive Director Beth Gottung. "We want to thank our partners and colleagues at NJPAC for providing us with the opportunity to host Daniel Craig and Stephen Colbert in their beautiful theater, our friends at Netflix for sharing GLASS ONION as the Opening Night Film of the 2022 Montclair Film Festival, and to Stephen and Evie Colbert, for their enduring and extraordinary support of our work at Montclair Film. "
