The Newburyport Documentary Film Festival is held every September along with year-round movie nights and a popular monthly @HOME program.

Support great films in an amazing community

This program is supported in part by grants from the local cultural councils of Amesbury, Georgetown, Groveland, Merrimac, Newbury, Newburyport, Rowley, and Salisbury, local agencies which are supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Newburyport Documentary Film Festival also wishes to thank our local sponsors. If you would like to sponsor please see our opportunities.


We welcome the financial support of the local community

Every September, the festival brings hundreds of visitors to Newburyport, who in addition to watching terrific documentaries, also spend the weekend dining out, staying overnight & shopping. Our sponsors and individual donors are vital to the success of our festival.

The Newburyport Film Festival is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit.
