“Beautiful, beautiful! Haverhill is the pleasantest village I have passed through.”
- George Washington, 1789
In 2013, thirty-seven miles north of Boston in an old shoe city, H.E.F.F was born- the "E" for experimental. We were the only experimental film festival in New England. Now, in our sixth annual year, we've decided to drop the “E” and open up our doors to more genres of short films- animation, documentary, local, narrative, and of course, experimental. We're accepting feature films in all those categories, too. Big changes around here. Please consider submitting your work; we'd love to take a look. And if you have any questions about anything, don't hesitate to ask!
