Did you know that by age sixteen, Steven Spielberg (Jaws, E.T. the Extraterrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark) was already shooting films and screening them at his local movie theater?
Such an opportunity seems unattainable for a young filmmaker which is why the NH Film Festival’s Young Filmmaker Workshop is so special. This signature, major weekend-long event is part film school, part film race, matching aspiring filmmakers with each other under the guidance of industry professionals in the production of original works screened with fanfare during the NH Film Festival’s closing ceremony.
Countless program alumni have gone on to studying film in college and have successful film industry careers.
The weekend is led by communications media specialist and local filmmaker John Herman.
Please take note of our festival dates: October 12-15, 2023.
The workshop begins Friday evening, October 13, at the opening ceremony.*
Friday: 6:30pm to 8:30pm
