Oscar-Winning and Emmy-Nominated Filmmakers Bring E-Team to NHFF
Presenting Special Tribute for Journalist & NH Native James Foley
The New Hampshire Film Festival is very proud to bring the acclaimed documentary E-Team to the festival, along with Academy Award-winning director Ross Kauffman, who co-directed the documentary with Katy Chevigny. The film won the U.S. Documentary Cinematography Award at Sundance Film Festival, and features the work of three cinematographers, Kauffman (Director of Photography) and Rachel Beth Anderson (co-cinematographer)
Ross Kauffman, who won an Academy Award for the film Born Into Brothels, will take part in a Q&A session following both screenings of E-Team—Saturday, Oct 18 at 3:30 P.M. at The Loft, and Sunday, Oct 19 at 12:05 P.M. at the Music Hall, with a special tribute honoring cinematographer James Foley (a native of Rochester, NH, and a UNH alum) after the Sunday screening. At the filmmaking team’s request, Sundance created a special cinematography award to honor Foley as an additional cinematographer on the film, and Kauffman on behalf of Chevigny and the filmmaking team will present the award to the Foley family during this special tribute.

“We are endlessly thankful for James Foley’s life’s work: shining a light on the darkest of conflicts, giving voices to those who have been forced silent, advocating for peace and change,” said New Hampshire Film Festival Programming Director Nicole Galovski. “It’s such an honor to bring works like E-Team to our festival, and reminds us all of the indelible power of voice through film.”
