The New Haven Documentary Film Festival (NHdocs) is accepting student short documentaries now. The student competition is open to students who attend school in New England or New York. The extended student submission deadline is July 1, 2021. There is no submission fee this year for student's works.

NHdocs was created to bring filmmakers and cinephiles together. They promote local filmmakers by showcasing their work and creating a collaborative space for the community and artists to share, all the while fostering the next generation of filmmakers. NHdocs’s goal is to bring together film enthusiasts and the people who’ve made the films to interact as well as to showcase local films. They are resolutely democratic in their embrace of the documentary tradition on the local as well as the international level.
