About the Easthampton Film Festival (EFF): Chris Ferry, the festival’s founder and organizer, has produced and participated in making several independent films. He moved to Easthampton from New York City with his family in 2020. Eager to join the thriving artistic community here, he connected with local filmmakers. The Easthampton Film Festival showcases the work of up-and-coming filmmakers from around the world (Canada, Finland, France, New Zealand, Turkey), with a particular focus on celebrating regional talent and themes (MA: Amherst, Cambridge, Easthampton, Gloucester, Northampton, and Waltham, as well as films from CA, ME, NJ, NY, RI, and SC).
This year’s film selections represent several genres, including: animation, comedy, documentary, drama, and horror. Panel discussions with attending filmmakers will follow screenings. More detail on each screening here.
This year, EFF offers filmmaking workshops in addition to film screenings. Each costs $250; registration and details can be found on the festival’s website.
