NBPT Docu Fest

Newburyport Documentary
Film Festival

We are eagerly preparing for the 17th annual NBPTDocuFest this September 17-19. At the moment, we anticipate that this year's festival will be a hybrid of virtual and theatrical screenings. Please keep an eye out for our periodic Film Series events, and we'll see you in September!

We could not run the festival and programs without our sponsors

This program is also supported in part by grants from the Local Cultural Councils of Amesbury, Merrimac, Newburyport, Rowley, Salisbury and West Newbury, local agencies which are supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Thank you to all of our sponsors for supporting great films in our amazing community. We urge you to support them.
