Montclair Film, the non-profit organization behind the town's annual film festival, has announced two events scheduled for this summer, including Paul Giamatti in conversation with Montclair's Stephen Colbert, and a summer film showcase at The Clairidge movie theater.

Both programs are part of the second annual North to Shore festival, which will present a bevy of performances, readings, parties and film screenings in Asbury Park, Atlantic City and Newark over the course of three weeks in June.

From June 27-30, Montclair Film's Summer Showcase will include sundry independent film screenings, Q&As, panel discussions and other events, similar to the organization's own annual festival set to take place in October.

A program schedule for the showcase will be released soon, after distributors confirm their titles with Montclair Film, said Jill Montague, who works for the organization.

Over the same weekend, Giamatti will appear on stage with Stephen Colbert for a live discussion, beginning at 8 p.m. on June 29, at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

Tickets to the event are currently on sale through the Montclair Film website, NJPAC and Ticketmaster.

Following his Golden Globe winning performance in "The Holdovers," which showed Giamatti once again team up with director Alexander Payne ("Sideways," 2004,) the actor will sit with Montclair resident and host of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to discuss his career in film, television and his podcast, "Chinwang," which Montclair Film describes as a deep dive "into the wilderness of the mind."
