Portsmouth, New Hampshire – USA October 11 to 14, 2012

The 12th Annual NEW HAMPSHIRE FILLM FESTIVAL (NHFF) began in 2001 as a small, grassroots organization to support regional and student filmmakers. It now holds a place as a world-class festival that showcases the brightest talent on the international film festival scene.

Presenting the best of independent film at four state-of-the-art screening venues in the gorgeous seacoast city of Portsmouth, the Festival emphasizes creative collaboration, education, and networking. Filmmakers can mix and mingle with other film artists, fans, and industry guests at an array of panels and after-parties.
