High schoolers, submit short films

The New Hampshire Film and Television Office is now accepting submissions for the 2013 New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival.

All submissions must be postmarked on or before March 31, or arrive at the Film & Television Office at 19 Pillsbury St. in Concord by 4 p.m. on that date.

The festival is open to students currently enrolled in grades 9-12 at New Hampshire public or private high schools; homeschooled students ages 14 to 18 are also eligible. Submissions do not have to have been created as part of a school project. To be considered, a film cannot be longer than seven minutes, including titles and credits.

A panel of New Hampshire film industry professionals will review all submissions and then select films to be shown at the festival itself, which takes place at New Hampshire Technical Institute’s Sweeney Hall Auditorium in Concord on June 15, beginning at 1 p.m.

Winning films will be screened on New Hampshire Day and Night at the New Hampshire Film Festival in Portsmouth in October and the SNOB Film Festival in Concord in November.
