New Hampshire Film Festival accepts and receives film and screenplay submissions from around the world for consideration to be included in the festival schedule. NHFF received over 850 films, and 100 screenplays  for consideration in 2013 and included 100 films, and selected 1 grand prize screenwriter for the 2013 event.

ALL films and screenplays must be submitted through Withoutabox or Film Freeway.

Submission deadlines:

  • Early Bird Deadline: May 15
  • Official Deadline: June 15
  • Late Entry Deadline: July 15
  • Extended Deadline (Screenplays): July 31
  • Extended Deadline (Films): August 31

Information is available on the NHFF Withoutabox page regarding fees. While we certainly understand the financial challenges of independent filmmakers and screenwriters, as a non-profit, volunteer organization, we face financial challenges of our own and rely on submission fees to  fund our festival. We do hope all filmmakers and screenwriters interested in being considered for the NHFF will submit.

Estimated notification for submission decisions is late September.
