NEW HAMPSHIRE FILM FESTIVAL NAMED ONE OF MOVIEMAKER MAGAZINE’S 50 FILM FESTIVALS WORTH THE ENTRY FEE OF 2023
PORTSMOUTH, NH – MovieMaker today announced that the New Hampshire Film Festival has been named to its annual list of 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee, celebrating festivals that serve moviemakers and audiences in some of the best destinations in the world.
MovieMaker, a film magazine and website based in Los Angeles, compiles its annual list based on surveys, filmmaker testimonials, and visits to festivals, among other factors. Key considerations include how much assistance a festival provides to traveling filmmakers; recent premieres at the festival; opportunities to meet distributors, fans, fellow filmmakers and press; and whether festivals are Academy-qualifying.
“With the film world in a state of constant change in recent years, festivals are more important than ever to help audiences and distributors find new films, and to remind all of us why we devote so much of our lives to making and loving movies,” said MovieMaker editor Tim Molloy. “The festivals on this list work incredibly hard to make it feel effortless.”
Founded in 2001, the New Hampshire Film Festival’s mission is to inspire audiences with thought-provoking cinematic stories from visionary talents in independent filmmaking and to provide a platform for emerging artists to advance their craft, engage with the community and promote to industry leaders. From young filmmakers to up-and-coming directors and seasoned screenwriters to veteran actors, the festival showcases the brightest talent within the domestic and international film scene. The festival also emphasizes creative collaboration, education and networking through panel discussions, workshops and social events.
The 21st Annual New Hampshire Film Festival will take place October 12-15, 2023 throughout downtown Portsmouth. Film and screenplay submissions are now open.
