Buzzards Bay Film Festival

The Buzzards Bay Film Festival is a celebration of Buzzards Bay, a 233-square mile estuary in Southeastern Massachusetts nestled between the mainland shore, western Cape Cod, and the Elizabeth Islands. The Buzzards Bay Film Festival will focus on the Bay, its watershed, and the 360,000
people who live in its surrounding towns and cities.

The Festival will take place on the evening of November 9, 2012 at the First Congregational Church, Falmouth, Massachusetts; the evening of November 10, at Gallery X, New Bedford, Massachusetts, and November 11 at the Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford.

The Festival will present films that have been shot in whole or part on the Bay or in its watershed, have the Bay as their subject, or promote the Bay’s preservation and restoration. The Festival welcomes narrative films, documentaries, animation, features, shorts and cellphone videos.

All proceeds from the Festival will be dedicated to the Buzzards Bay Coalition, a membership-supported nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration, protection and sustainable use and enjoyment of Buzzards Bay and its watershed.

Deadline for entries is October 10.
