New Hampshire Film Festival




October 15–18, Portsmouth After receiving more than 700 submissions this year, the New Hampshire Film Festival judges have announced a roster of 80 accepted films for what is expected to be NHFF's largest turnout so far. Headlining films include "Serious Moonlight" with Meg Ryan, Kristen Bell, Justin Long and Timothy Hutton; "Paper Heart" featuring Michael Cera of "Juno" and "Arrested Development;" and "Mystery Team," a comedy shot in New Hampshire from Manchester filmmaker Dan Eckman. The New Hampshire Film Festival is a weekend cultural experience set in the beautiful fall foliage of picturesque seaside Portsmouth. One of the largest film fests in New England, the four-day event draws celebrities, academy-award winners, film industry veterans and local film lovers. Most importantly, NHFF offers workshops and discussions for young and new filmmakers to interact with industry pros and learn the art and business of film. Pictured is Chase Bailey's short film "Crooked Lane," a paranormal drama set in New Hampshire and based on a true story passed down over the years from one generation to the next. For a clip of "Crooked Lane" visit http://newhampshire.bside.com/2009/films/crookedlane_chasebailey_newhampshire2009. To see the entire movie, you'll have to head to Portsmouth for the festival. <br> <br>
