NH student filmmakers to shine at film festival, May 20
Now in its 10th year, the 2017 New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival will take place at Red River Theatres in Concord on May 20, beginning at noon.
This year’s 24 films include animation, comedy, drama, documentary, music video and public service announcements/commercials. They were chosen from 66 entries submitted by students from 16 high schools and career and technical centers.
Presented by the New Hampshire Division of Film and Digital Media, the festival is an opportunity both for students to have their films shown at a professional venue and for the public to experience the state’s up-and-coming creative talent.
The Jury Award Winner for Best Film of the Festival, Jury Award Runner-up, three Jury Award Finalists and the Public Service Announcement Award will be presented at the festival.
