Manchester celebrates movies — 08/04/22

The inaugural Manchester International Film Festival rolls into the Queen City’s Rex Theatre next weekend (Friday, Aug. 12, through Sunday, Aug. 14), a three-day event packed with screenings of everything from cult classics to New Hampshire-directed short films. Find out what it takes to put together a film festival in the Granite State, and meet some of the directors behind several of the event’s featured flicks.

Also on the cover Katelyn Sahagian gets all the details on the return of this year’s League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair (page 19). Gourmet deli sandwiches are the stars of the menu at City Hall Pub, a new lunch option for downtown Manchester (page 28). Find local laughs this weekend and beyond in our Comedy This Week section (page 37).
