New Vermont programming
This documentary, a labor of love written, directed and edited by Hollywood screenwriter and director Bill Phillips (Christine, The Beans of Egypt Maine) profiles the life and career of Sabra Field. The documentary explores Field's most commonly seen and circulated images - which celebrate American pastoral motifs in New England - and asks why some critics have long dismissed the pastoral as an appropriate subject for contemporary art.
|Mr. Jimmy’s Birthday Challenge|
When Mr. Jimmy Moore challenged himself to run 80 kilometers in 1 day for his 80th birthday, his small Mississippi town got behind him to see if they too could "run their age," from age 8 to 80.
|On The Trail: Hiking Through Vermont On The Long Trail|
On the Trail is a short documentary film about a journey across the state of Vermont on America's first long distance hiking trail. This film documents both the physical and emotional challenges faced by a mother and son as they undertake this 273-mile-long trek from Massachusetts to Canada.
A Vermont Romance is 100 years old in 2016! The first feature film shot in Vermont and funded by The Vermont Progressive Party in 1916 has been newly restored and remastered by VAMP, The Vermont Archive Movie Project, featuring a new musical score performed by Bob Merrill.
