The New Hampshire Film Festival, a festival that Women in Film and Video New England has now partnered with for several years, has recently been named a qualifier for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Short Film Awards along with other notable festivals including the Cannes Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival.
The New Hampshire Film Festival has shown "nearly 1,300 shorts" since its founding in 2001 and co-founder Dan Hannon states the "qualification further enhances our mutual endeavor to support the short film medium."
Short films shown at NHFF that receive the Live Action or Animation Shorts Jury Award will qualify for consideration in the Live Action Short Film and Animation Short Film categories of the 94th Academy Awards.
The New Hampshire Film festival is proud of its qualification and imminent representation of New England's finest film makers. The complete list of qualifying festivals can be found here.
