Nantucket Film Festival & Screenplay Competition

International Film Festival with focus on screenwriting.

About

The Nantucket Film Festival (NFF) was founded in 1996 to spotlight the screenwriters and screenwriting in today's cinema. From its conception, NFF has been dedicated to the notion that the screenwriter's contribution is at the core of filmmaking.

For four days in June, screenwriting is celebrated with screenings of over 20 feature-length and short films and videos. The craft of screenwriting is explored through panel discussions, a screenplay competition and the Screenwriter's Tribute, which honors the career of a notable and distinguished screenwriter. The Morning Coffee With... series and the wildly popular Late Night Storytelling round out the line up.
