NH High School Film Festival submission deadline: March 31

The New Hampshire Film & Television Office is reminding students that the deadline to submit films for the 2010 New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival is approaching. All submissions must be postmarked on or before March 31, 2010, or arrive at the State Library in Concord by 4 p.m. on that date.

Designed to foster and reward interest in filmmaking for future members of the industry, the NH High School Short Film Festival is open to students currently enrolled in grades 9-12 at New Hampshire public or private high schools. Submissions do not have to have been created as part of a school project.

Rules and guidelines, film submission forms and other festival information about the NH High School Short Film Festival can be found online at

All submitted films are reviewed by a panel of judges made up of New Hampshire film industry professionals. Selected films are shown at Festival itself, which takes place at New Hampshire Technical Institute’s Sweeney Hall Auditorium in Concord on May 15, 2010, beginning at noon.

Winners of the Jury Award, which is selected by the judging panel, and the Audience Award, which is selected by those attending the Festival, will be screened at Red River Theatres in summer 2010 and on NH Day at the NH Film Festival in October 2010.

The New Hampshire Film and Television Office, as part of the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources, works to expand business activity and employment throughout the state by acting as a liaison between the film industry and an established network of government agencies, the state’s film industry workforce, and local property owners. The office is responsible for location assistance, public relations and general production support in an effort to broaden the cultural and economic impact of film and television production in the state.
