New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival Begins Screening Tour

New Hampshire moviegoers and aspiring young filmmakers will have the chance to see locally made blockbusters from around the state this summer and fall as the New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival begins its first-ever multi-theater screening tour.

Twenty-five student-produced short films were selected to screen at the 2015 Festival, which was held in May at Red River Theatres in Concord. This year, the Festival goes on the road, screening in DCP format at theaters around the state.

The kickoff screening will be held at The Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem on June 11 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5. Visit http://bethlehemcolonialtheatre.org for more information.

Additional dates and theaters will be added through the summer and will be announced on the Festival website at http://nhstudentfilm.com.

Launched in 2008 and presented by the New Hampshire Film & Television Office, the New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival has become one of the marquee film festivals in the state, fostering interest in filmmaking, encouraging media arts education in schools, and rewarding future members of the industry for their craft.

The New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival has partnered with Dan Bérubé of Boston Creative Pro User Group (BOSCPUG) for the Festival’s filmmaker awards and the production of the DCP that will be touring theaters equipped with digital projection systems.
