The Faming Puma Film Festival was created to bring together filmmakers and audiences in a celebration of independent films. Films are shown followed by Q&A sessions with directors and producers. The festival is committed to bringing the best local films from across New Hampshire to the screen as well as welcoming films from across the country and around the world. We are endeavoring to put together an event which can be celebrated by producers and fans alike. We wish to showcase the works of our filmmakers, actors and crews. We know it takes many hands to put a successful film together and we want to give many new films the opportunity to be seen and experienced.
