Closing Ceremonies and Awards

15TH ANNUAL NHFF GRANNY AWARDS

The 2015 New Hampshire Film Festival recognizes the best films in several categories by presenting our Granny Awards. The Granny is a celebration of NHFF’s award-winning films and also pays homage to our beloved Granite State. Weighing in at about 10 pounds, the Granny is surely the most physically significant award in the indie world. Hand-carved from granite, it’s also the heaviest award in the film industry.

GRAND JURY AWARD —
DOCUMENTARY AND NARRATIVE
The Grand Jury Award is NHFF’s most prestigious award. New this year is a Grand Jury Award specifically for feature length documentaries, selected by a separate Documentary Grand Jury. Also new this year, a prize package for an all-expenses-paid trip for the director or producer to NYC for an industry meeting with Oscilloscope Laboratories (Narrative winner) or A&E Indie Films (Documentary winner) has been added to the esteemed awards. The top three undistributed films in each category as selected by NHFF executive staff, board and screening committee compete for this year’s Grand Jury Awards.

All feature length narrative films are nominated for Best Feature. Feature length narrative films must be 60 minutes or longer. Selected by the screening committee, board and executive staff, this award recognizes the Best Feature film in NHFF 2015.

AUDIENCE CHOICE —
DOCUMENTARY AND NARRATIVE
