With so many great activities and festivals here in Cape Cod, it’s difficult to schedule all of the things you would like to do. We at Chatham Gables Inn get questions all the time from guests asking what are some of the best activities to do while in town for a limited number of days. There’s always a log going on, so sometimes it’s best to encourage guests to come for a particular event. One featured activity that we always highly recommend is the Nantucket Film Festival! This will be the 21st year for the Nantucket Film Festival; when you do a bit of research into this amazing festival, it’s easy to see why so many visitors enjoy traveling to Cape Cod for this famous attraction.
The 2016 Nantucket Film Festival will be held June 22-27. This cinematic event is immensely popular, not only for the hard work of its staff, but also for its prime location. If you have ever been to Nantucket, there’s no argument that it is one of the most fascinating places in the world. When you combine the interesting history and architecture along with the friendly residents and beautiful beaches, it becomes a great place to visit, regardless of the time of year.
The purpose of the Nantucket Film Festival is “To promote the cultural awareness and appreciation of the art of screenwriting in the world of cinema.” This can be traced all the way back to the core of the Nantucket Film Festival, where the hosts believe that the screenwriter is at the foundation of the film. At the Nantucket Film Festival, screenwriters will have a plethora of amazing services available to them that you will not find anywhere else. There are competitions, script analysis, and an opportunity to learn more about the Screenwriters Colony. A partner with the Nantucket Film Festival for many years, this organization gives an all-expenses-paid award to the winner of the screenwriting competition.
The tickets for the Nantucket Film Festival can be purchased in three different ways. You can buy tickets, passes, or be a part of the Legacy Circle. Tickets are the simplest and cheapest way to see exactly the screenings you want; their prices vary, so be sure to check out their site for a list of them. If you choose to purchase passes, you’ll find that there are different levels of passes, as well as different packages that include a number of options. If you plan on attending multiple events and/or screenings, a package is the best choice for you. Finally, there is the Legacy Circle, a great option for those who eat, sleep, and breathe the Nantucket Film Festival and want to be a part of every aspect of it. You will get the VIP treatment with the Legacy Circle as well as invitations to a host of other events as well.
