39. Three major New Hampshire film festivals are scheduled for this fall. The first is the 18th Telluride by the Sea at The Music Hall in Portsmouth on Friday, Sept. 16, through Sunday, Sept. 18. The Colorado export event is going to offer local film buffs six films over the weekend fresh from the 43rd Telluride Film Festival. Weekend passes are $90 and “patron” passes are $210. Next is the 16th Annual New Hampshire Film Festival at The Music Hall and other screening venues in Portsmouth from Thursday, Oct. 13, through Sunday, Oct. 16. Weekend passes are $75, VIP passes are $200, or visitors can pay $20 for just Thursday or $35 for either Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Then from Friday, Nov. 11, through Sunday, Nov. 13, the somewhat rebranded Somewhat North of Boston film festival, now titled the SNOB Film Festival Presents 2016 New England Indie Fest, happens at Red River Theatres in Concord, according to Barry Steelman at Red River. Organizers are still finalizing the details of that event, but attendees can be sure to expect plenty of good independent films and beer.

40. Celebrate national Art House Theater Day with your fellow film fans at Red River Theatres with a full day of festivities and film on Saturday, Sept. 24. The mini film festival will start screenings from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a selection of short films in the morning and a number of features such as Danny Says, a documentary about the legendary rock promoter Danny Fields, who worked with bands in the 1960s and 1970s like The Doors, Lou Reed, The Stooges and The Ramones. Attendees will be able to see this film a week before its official release date. There will also be screenings of a Werner Herzog documentary about the internet called Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World and Morris from America, a coming-of-age tale about a black American teenager growing up in Germany, starring Hot Tub Time Machine’s Craig Robinson.
41. Fans of the Fab Four take heed: A one-time showing of Ron Howard’s documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years is hitting the big screen at Red River Theatres on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 6:30 p.m. The movie not only features several minutes of old super-8 film of the iconoclastic British band meticulously synced up to old audio recordings, but the theater screening will have something the regular documentary — which will be available to stream on Hulu the day after — won’t have. Theater-goers will get to see 30 minutes of archival footage from The Beatles’ concert at Shea Stadium.
