It’s never hard to find some good films being shown in Concord, and this Saturday will feature a whole slew of them created by New Hampshire high school students.

Now in its 10th year, the 2017 New Hampshire High School Short Film Festival will take place at Red River Theatres on Saturday, beginning at noon.

This year’s 24 films include animation, comedy, drama, documentary, music video and public service announcements/commercials. They were chosen from 66 entries submitted by students from 16 high schools and career and technical centers.

There are no films created by Concord students this year, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go and check out the hard work of many other Granite State high-schoolers.

Presented by the New Hampshire Division of Film and Digital Media, the festival is an opportunity both for students to have their films shown at a professional venue and for the public to experience the state’s up-and-coming creative talent.

The Jury Award winner for Best Film of the Festival, Jury Award Runner-up, three Jury Award Finalists and the Public Service Announcement Award will be presented at the festival.

Note: Some of the films, though created by the youth of the state, may contain subject matter that may not be suitable for younger audiences, so viewer discretion is advised.

Tickets are $7 and are available at the door or at redrivertheatres.org.
