    The New Hampshire Film Festival is set to pay tribute to James Foley, an American journalist who was murdered by Islamic extremists.

    The acclaimed documentary called "E-Team," featuring the work of director Ross Kauffman, cinematographer Rachel Beth Anderson, and additional cinematographer and New Hampshire native James Foley will screen at the Music Hall in Portsmouth on Saturday, Oct. 18 at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 19 at 12:05 p.m.

    After the Sunday screening, tribute will be paid to Foley. At the filmmaking team's request, Sundance Film Festival created a special cinematography award to honor Foley as an additional cinematographer on the film.

    Kauffman will present the award to the Foley family on behalf of co-director Katy Chevigny and the filmmaking team.

    The film, which tracks four members of the Emergencies Team of an international human rights group as they smuggle across the border into Syria and Libya to investigate, expose, and halt human rights violations, won the U.S. Documentary Cinematography award at Sundance.
