Weekend Titles from NHFF
This weekend NHFF brings you a couple more titles as we continue to stay safe at home. We are grateful to have this time to look back on our past twenty years and celebrate some of the amazing titles we once shared with our attendees.
We hope you enjoy Into the Okavango and Eighth Grade
“Into the Okavango” directed by Neil Gelinas, “Into the Okavango” is available for free exclusively on Disney+. Shown at our 2018 festival, “Into the Okavango” brings together a passionate conservation biologist, a river bushman fearful of losing his past, and a young scientist uncertain of her future on a four-month expedition across three countries, through unexplored and dangerous landscapes, in order to save the Okavango Delta. A deeply personal and earnest documentary that takes a loving look at the idea that even the smallest of animals plays an important role in our world.
“Eighth Grade”, the first feature film directed by Bo Burnham is available for free with an Amazon Prime subscription and is available for rent on both iTunes for $3.99 and Amazon for $2.99. “Eighth Grade” is a relatable coming of age film about thirteen-year-old Kayla, as she navigates the last week of her tumultuous year of eighth grade. A heartfelt and necessary look at the awkwardness of middle school and early adolescence. A fantastic debut film and a breakout role for the star of the film Elsie Fisher. “Eighth Grade” was a tremendous hit at our 2018 festival.
We hope you are safe, healthy, and hopefully getting through this time by getting lost in some great films.
Wishing you all the best,
The New Hampshire Film Festival Team
