Ahoy there world travelers, arts & culture aficionados, movie mavens, stargazers and anyone who loves designer boutique hotels and summertime in New England: Coming to us June 25 – 30 is the Nantucket Film Festival!
In its 19th year, this growing festival is touted as early summer’s best movie mecca, and attracts a loyal and engaged audience from around the world with it’s diverse, fun and intimate program schedule.
Amongst film festivals, what sets Nantucket apart as a premiere destination (aside from its obviously spectacular island locale) is its unique focus on storytelling and celebration of talented screenwriters. In addition to its spotlight preview screenings, shorts and signature programs, the festival lineup includes inspiring and hilarious staged readings, “late night storytelling”, “morning coffees” and an all-star comedy roundtable.
A 5-day “nirvana” for movie fans and stargazers, this beloved event showcases beautiful films in an equally stunning, romantic setting. Even better: attendees have a plethora of options to choose from, with event passes ranging from 1-day (for just $95), to nights only, week-long, all the way up to premium all-access—for only the most impassioned film buffs (or desperately starstruck).
For us, just being on Nantucket during the festival is almost exciting enough on its own—considering that we just might run into our favorite stars licking an ice cream cone and strolling down the street in front of our boutique hotel here at 76 Main.
We can’t think of a more exciting, inspiring and fun way to begin the summer…so grab your big, dark movie star glasses and hop out to join us for this unforgettable Nantucket experience!
