Also slated for opening day is a festival screening of ‘Inside Out 2’ which carries on a long-standing tradition for the festival of screening either a Disney or Pixar film.

“This year’s slate of films continues to celebrate bold and independent voices close to home and across the world,” senior programmer Basil Tsiokos and lead programmer Anita Raswant said in an official statement. “We invite our audiences to explore a wide range of work that honors the power of storytelling — and in turn, our shared humanity over the course of our six-day, highly curated festival.”

“Since its inception in 1996, NFF has aimed to foster a space that showcases and celebrates the work of incredible storytellers in film and television, and this year is no exception” Nantucket Film Festival executive director Mystelle Brabbée stated.

“We are thrilled to introduce our curated lineup of films, events, and artists to our audiences on the Island come summer. As captivating as our on-screen experiences are, we are equally excited to highlight the power of storytelling off-screen through our signature programs featuring engaging live discussions and events with acclaimed screenwriters and filmmakers.”
