How to make a short film in a short time!Legendary film director Keith Boynton will show a pair of films in a special event at Memorial Hall, Sunday, July 7th, starting at 4 pm, to benefit the 2019 Ashfield FilmFest.

The feature film, Chasing Home, which Boynton made in 28 days, is a story of three siblings who come together when their father goes missing, a journey that takes them to unexpected places and forces them to confront their feelings about their father and each other. He will also show a short film from his “12 Films: 12 Weeks” project.

Following the presentation will be a talk-back with the filmmaker. Additional local filmmakers will be available for discussion and filmmaking assistance. Draw inspiration from pros and amateurs alike to learn how to make a 5-minute-or-less film for competition in Ashfield’s 13th Annual FilmFest.

Submissions for the FilmFest are due by August 12th. There is no entry fee. All submissions will be screened in front of a live audience and prizes will be awarded in multiple categories.

AFF will present the 13th Annual Traditional Shorts Competition
Saturday, September 21st
with a Feature Film Screening on Friday, September 20th

The juried competition is open to residents of Ashfield, Buckland, and Shelburne; however, if you are not a resident of these three towns, all that’s required is that your film be about, or set in Ashfield, or simply mention Ashfield in some creative way. In other words, all aspiring filmmakers are welcome to submit a short historical, musical, or fictional film.

You do not need to attend this special event to submit by the deadline of August 12th.
