Reception Starting Now! Day 2 at NHFF.
Friday at New Hampshire Film Festival has been incredible so far. As the Opening Night Reception begins now at The Music Hall (7 p.m.), we wanted to share a few highlights. We had several high-quality films screen today and several filmmakers and industry folks rolled into town from away. Highlights so far:
Adrian Grenier Q&A
Following a screening of his documentary “Teenage Paparazzo,” Actor/director Adrian Grenier (star of HBO series “Entourage,” held a 20-minute question and answer period at The Music Hall. The session even featured a cameo from his grandmother and aunt who live in New England and traveled to see him at NHFF!
Filmmaking in NH Panel
Moderated by NH’s venerable Commissioner of the Dept. of Cultural Resources, this panel featured Matt Newton of the NH Film & TV Office; producers Mark Constance and Dan Carey, Filmmaker/NHFF Co-Founder Dan Hannon, and Screenwriter/Professor Dana Biscotti Myskowski. Wow. Talk about a meeting of the cultural minds in NH film. The discussion included tips on scouting NH locations, the business of getting a film made in NH, and hands-on experience of the logistics of making film in NH.
“Family Affair” at Moffatt-Ladd House
Chico Colvard’s piercing foray into his troubled family’s history resonated with the audience at the exceptionally intimate Moffatt-Ladd House where the documentary screened. Nominated in the NHFF full program documentary category, this film clearly had an impact on those who saw it today.
