About Us

A competition based film festival, the Hockomock Film Festival encourages students to be creative, have fun and work collaboratively while creating unique films.
The Hockomock Film Festival was originally founded in 2002 as the ‘Easton Film Festival.’  The founders recognized that there was a broader opportunity and reconstituted it to include 13 neighboring towns of the Hockomock League. These towns are: Canton, Easton, Foxborough, Franklin, Mansfield, Milford, Norfolk, No. Attleborough, Plainville, Sharon, Stoughton, Taunton, and Wrentham.
Festival categories include: Drama, Documentary, and PSA. Submissions to the festival are due June 1st and an award ceremony will be held June 15th. This year marks the first year that the HFF will be exclusive to high school students in the Hockomock league towns.

Hockomock Film Festival founder and organizer Bill Ames has announced that he is retiring from the festival and is handing the reins over to Easton Community Access Television this year. We would like to thank Bill for all his hard work and for the opportunity provided to us. We would also like to thank everyone who has made the Hockomock Film Festival what it is today. We hope we can do it justice.

Easton Community Access Television is a non-profit dedicated, in part, to producing educational, cultural and informational community programming and to giving people a voice they otherwise might not have in the field of video and television production. We believe this festival provides a unique opportunity for students to embrace the world of film-making and build new skills in a fun and challenging environment.

If you are interested in hearing more please give us a call at 508-230-7200.

Sincerely yours,

Kim Pincus, Director of Community Media
