Vermont International Film Festival

Interested in film? Check out a series of epic cinema right in your own backyard with the Vermont International Film Festival – an annual week-long film festival showcasing a variety of international, domestic, and local cinema.

This year’s festival will be entirely virtual, and will be showcasing independent films from around the world with a focus on a few of the essential issues that have always, and still do, concern committed journalism and its impact on the public: how have news media changed over the past 50 years – radio, print, Cable, new media in its various forms, and how have films portrayed these changes. The program will be a combination of fiction and documentaries, both classical and contemporary.

As always, an essential component of the festival is engaging with the dialog surrounding the films. A selection of filmmakers and journalists will attend and participate in discussions and live Q&As. The 12 films will be offered in pairs with a single discussion for each pairs. Fran Stoddard, Van Dora Williams and Traci Griffith will be moderating.


You can purchase individual tickets for $12 a piece.  Passes can be purchased for access to all films and discussions.  UVM students can purchase a discounted pass by using their UVM Email address and the discount code (ST2020) when purchasing a pass.
