The Nashua Public Library is now accepting submissions for its first-ever Tiny Film Festival, designed to showcase of the extraordinary talent in the Nashua community and allow people of ages to get creative through film. Movies in all genres and forms will be considered but must be under one minute in length and suitable for all ages.


An awards ceremony for the Film Festival is planned for Saturday, March 11. Prizes, sponsored by the Friends of the Nashua Public Library, will be awarded to the top three winners in each age group.


To support those interested in making a short movie, the library is also offering a free TV Writers Q&A on Zoom with Dan Hamamura, a Writer/Producer on the CW’s Kung Fu. Dan will take questions about writing for film and TV and share his experiences working professionally in Hollywood. Teens will have an opportunity to learn photo editing basics through a class in February and filmmaking basics in a workshop in March. Tweens can learn Stop Motion Animation in an upcoming class in February and try out our Youth Services’ stop-motion camera.
