The NDFF presents world-class documentaries in an intimate setting in Newburyport, MA.
The Newburyport Documentary Film Festival (NDFF) is held every September along with year-round programs in Newburyport, MA, a small seaport city 40 minutes north of Boston.
Since 2004 we have been bringing the highest caliber documentary films to our community. In addition to weekend screenings at historic venues, we also hold filmmaker receptions, after-parties, panel discussions, Q&As, and workshops.
September’s festival features the YES Award – Young Emerging Filmmakers Showcase — works by filmmakers who are current or recent graduates of higher education institutions.
Please see our archive of documentary films and stay up-to-date on our latest filmmakers interviews on YouTube.
Connect with filmmakers at small-panel Q&A sessions, after-parties, workshops and panels.
