    2020 Newburyport Documentary Film Festival

    Films are available for the duration of the festival so you can chose to watch at a time most convenient to you. They will have a Live Q&A session for each film/short film block and the time for these sessions can be found by clicking on the Schedule button.

    Virtual Full Moon Story Slam

    Please note: Audience Members limit is 100, so be sure to sign up early. (https://www.newburyportacting.org/fmss-performance-20200926-registration-theme-mayhem/)

    The next Full Moon Story Slam is your chance to gather as friends – virtually, of course – and share true stories from our lives. Simply put, a story slam is a competition based on the art of storytelling. It puts a dual emphasis on content and performance, encouraging storytellers to focus on what they’re saying and how they’re saying it. It is an exercise in crafting stories within a set time limit – and it is great entertainment! Story slammers will tell a 5-minute short story based on the evening’s theme: “Mayhem.”

    If you would like to tell a story, please email info@newburyportacting.org on, or before, noon on September 24th.

    At 5:00 P.M. they will draw our 8 storytellers from a hat. **They ask that you be available for a 30-minute tech session at 7:00 P.M. that evening (the 24th). **

    The competition will be on Saturday, September 26, at 7:00 P.M.

    Don’t be nervous, they will send easy instructions and host a run through beforehand.

    Pre-registration to be an audience member is also required. (https://www.newburyportacting.org/fmss-performance-20200926-registration-theme-mayhem/)
    Once signed up, you will be sent the Zoom link.

    Criteria for judging will be the same as during a live slam.
    • The story has an arc: a beginning, a point of change, and a resolution.
    • Presentation of the story.
    • Time (no longer than five minutes) and connection to the theme.
    Please remember, the story must be true. The story must be yours. And you may not use props, notes or a written script.

    This event is free, however, donations are greatly appreciated.
