The New Hampshire Film Festival went out with a bang on Sunday night with its closing ceremonies at the Portsmouth Music Hall.

Before the awards ceremony began, festival staff recognized all participants of the NH Film Festival Young Filmmakers Workshop. These Young Filmmakers, ages 14-18, spent NHFF weekend writing, casting, directing, and editing their own short films. The ceremony’s attendees got a sneak peek at these films. With titles like I Think Greg Is A Robot, The Jeff, and A Tip For the Average Romantic, the Young Filmmakers’ shorts displayed up-and-coming talent across an impressive array of genres.

The NHFF staff then took the stage to announce the recipients of each film award. In case you weren’t there to see the acceptance speeches, here are this weekend’s award-winning films:
