Celebrate New Filmmakers in Middlebury

{Thursday, August 24 – Sunday, August 27} Brand new cinema and scenic Vermont meet at Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival.

Lights, camera, Vermont. The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival celebrates the work of first and second time filmmakers in scenic Middlebury. Now in its third iteration, the festival will take place in the historic Town Hall Theater, the recently renovated Marquis Theatre, and the Dana Auditorium at Middlebury College. An anticipated program of roughly 90 genre-spanning feature and short films—selected by Jay Craven, festival artistic director—will grace the screens of these three venues over four days. Filmmakers are encouraged to support one another’s work and participate in post-screening audience Q&As. Panel discussions, conversations, and a variety of parties are slated to round out this long weekend of cinema.

The juried competition awards filmmakers the VTeddy Award in the following categories: Best Feature Narrative, Best Short Narrative, Best Feature Documentary, Best Short Documentary, Audience Award Feature, and Audience Award Short. Winning films will be exhibited from mid-March through late April of next year in the festival’s New England Tour, which makes notable stops in all six states in the region to facilitate additional exposure and interaction between new filmmakers and audiences.
