The SNOB (Somewhat North of Boston) Film Fest is gearing up for its ninth year this coming November and right now the window for submissions is still open. They are looking for not only shorts but feature length films and regional films. Oh, and if your film has a connection to the Northern New England area it will be given special consideration in the selection process.
SNOB is also excited to announce the creation of the KNOB (Kids North of Boston) Film Session. KNOB was created to give young filmmakers a chance to see their work on the big screen and in front of a large audience of movie buffs. Young filmmakers are asked to submit films of quality and no more than seven minutes in length. Topics for this year’s KNOB festival include: the environment, social issues and New England history.
The festival began as a grassroots effort in 2002 to showcase and support independent filmmaking in the region. All proceeds from the fest are used to support the arts. SNOB is a chance for the local audiences to experience a film that they just might never see with surround sound and their community.
“We are extremely excited about this year’s festival. We are currently receiving and reviewing lots of great films that will be shown at this year’s event,” Executive Director of SNOB Jay Doherty tells HEC. “This will be SNOB’s 9th year after a hiatus last year. We have a new committee with lots of energy and we are working to make this year’s event just as good if not better than past SNOB Film Festival Events.” FYI- Jay’s favorite film genre is dark comedy.
The three day event will take place from November 19th-21st and will be hosted at the Red River Theaters in Concord, NH. The main theaters have stadium-seating, sound to boot and adult beverages to join your viewing. If you live in NH and want to get involved in SNOB, you may be able to earn free festival tix.
