Digital Photo and Video students Stephanie Barney, Olivia Mullins, Alyssa Spiller, Zachary Nielsen, and Eddie Pope have earned the right to have their films shown at this year’s New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival (NHHSSFF) on May 18.
Originality, cinematic storytelling and technical execution are the primary scoring elements of the NHHSSFF. All films, regardless of type or genre, are judged on the filmmaker’s ability to effectively captivate an audience through cinematic expression.
After an initial review of all the submissions, the films with the highest scores will be screened at the annual two-hour New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival, which takes place at Red River Theatres in Concord.
In order to be considered, films must be produced exclusively by students in grades 9-12 who are currently enrolled and attending a New Hampshire public or private high school, or who are residents of New Hampshire and enrolled in high school elsewhere. New Hampshire homeschooled students ages 14-18 are also eligible. Films do not have to have been created as part of a school project.
