NHFF Announces Panels for 10th Annual Festival!
40 Special Guests. Starz/Anchor Bay Entertainment, Magnolia Releasing, Shorts International, Tribeca Film Fest and Rule Boston Camera Join Award-Winning Filmmakers and Producers!
Each year the New Hampshire Film Festival offers professional development and educational opportunities for filmmakers, screenwriters and interested film enthusiasts. NHFF prides itself on presenting several topical workshops, panel discussions and engaging conversations that range from purely professional for the established filmmaker to all-encompassing for even the freshest of amateurs.
“For our tenth anniversary, we really pulled out all the stops. This lineup of panels and roster of great people participating in them is our most impressive to date,” said NHFF Co-Founder and Panel Director Dan Hannon. “I’d like to extend a huge thanks to these panelists and moderators for their time and passion they’re dedicating to NHFF, its attendees and filmmakers,” he added.

In 2010, NHFF is enjoying a watershed year with support from international brands including underwriter Francis Ford Coppola Winery as well as Absolut Vodka and Stella Artois beer. The fest has also relocated festival headquarters to the newly built Marriott Residence Inn, added actress Rae Dawn Chong to the NHFF Board of Directors, and added two new VIP events to its already robust list of networking opportunities.
