Focus on Film, parent of the Green Mountain Film Festival in Central Vermont, is one of the unusual arts organizations, in that it is solidly community-based. the input is city-wide (Montpelier, Vt) if not state-wide and a bit beyond. I've been one small part of the exciting growth of this festival from a local effort to a regional force in film. One of the perks for a film lover in this endeavor is seeing a lot of independent and documentary films one otherwise would not have access to. The educational aspect is very strong, for filmmakers and knowledgeable speakers often accompany the screenings. It's great fun for those of us engaged in the festival, and brings together an amazingly diverse group of workers behind the scenes, people with skills beyond normal expectations.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Quite wonderful, smart and skilled and devoted.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I don't think it needs $10 million. With some more money it could expand the number of its venues, could expand the range of choices (e.g., shipping foreign films prints is costly), it might expand into competitive categories, and move to support Vt. film

Every spring. Focus on Film brings scores of great films to Central Vermont audiences at the Green Mountain Film Festival. It's a fantastic celebration of the art of film, and it draws the whole community together. No better way to get rid of the winter blues!

Focus on Film is a non-profit in the smallest capital, Montpelier, Vermont. It provides a dynamic and wonderful film festival for 10 days every year that enriches our community and brings people together with unique and sometimes rarely seen films. The Green Mountain Film Festival is a welcome addition to our Vermont "mud season" and people look forward to it for months ahead.
