The Film Lineup of the 20th Anniversary New Hampshire Film Festival Is Here!

We are so incredibly thrilled to announce that over 100 high-caliber and diverse independent films will be featured at the 2022 New Hampshire Film Festival, taking place October 6-9 in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Selecting the final films to screen for our 20th anniversary edition was more difficult than ever, but we couldn’t be prouder of the lineup we’ve curated. On behalf of the New Hampshire Film Festival screening committee and the New Hampshire Film Festival board of directors, we want to thank all of the filmmakers who submitted films this year.

The 2022 lineup includes recent international festival highlights from Sundance, SXSW, Cannes, Tribeca, Toronto, and Berlin, as well as several world premieres and over 50 selections created by New Hampshire filmmakers.
