NewEnglandFilm.com’s Online New England Film Festival is an online film festival that runs between the day after Labor Day in September through mid-October each year on the website NewEnglandFilm.com. Founded in 2009, the festival features New England short (under 30-minute) films in all genres—drama, comedy, thriller, documentary, horror, animation, music video, family, experimental, and sci-fi.
We typically host one in-person event/screening for filmmakers. Past partners for events have included ITVFest and Adobe.
Jury award prizes are chosen by festival staff, and audience award prizes are determined by number of views in categories such as animation, documentary, drama, comedy, etc.
All films featured in the festival:
* Must have a local connection to New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont), meaning that it was filmed there, a cast/crew lives or lived there or was educated in New England. Ask your cast & crew—you can often find an unexpected connection!
* Must be under 30 minutes.
