As always for the past 13 years, the GMFF was a highlight of my year, educating, enlightening, and exciting me. I saw 11 films (and am eagerly awaiting retirement when I can see them all!!), volunteered on 2 days and hope to do more next year. The festival generates an excited downtown where conversations are sparked between strangers, friends, and people from greater Vermont who come to Montpelier for the GMFF. Many thanks for all the hard work by festival organizers!

The three venues worked well, and the charming restaurant in between provided a relaxed atmosphere for talking about and enjoying films.I block off this week in my calendar every year, and it certainly makes sometimes dreary March go much faster. Terrific films. I especially enjoy the documentaries, and all the discussions after the films.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I try to see every film every year. It is not possible to do so, but with careful planning, one can attend almost every film. This year, a "daytime-weekday" pass made the fest super affordable for those with flexible work schedules.

I enjoyed this years film festival more than ever. I volunteered plus saw about 20 films. It was a tremendous week, a way to submerge myself in film,with documentaries, music and other types. I like all the venues; the new ona at the Pavilion is very comfortable. I plan to volunteer next year to help keep this enjoyable, enlightening and community festival going.

This event is mis-characterized as a great Montpelier event. It is truly a phenomenal regional event, and it does draw from other areas of New England and New York. It is one of the best things about Central Vermont each year. The selections are very thoughtful and diverse, with something that will appeal to almost anyone. Although it is a separate event and organization, it continues and amplifies the great work done by the Savoy (in admittedly smaller and less frequent doses than the festival is able).

This is a great, well-balanced film festival. The organizers take a lot of care in selecting the very best documentaries and feature films, and their winning programs are comparable to much larger festivals.

Focus on Film brings to Vermont a great event. The film selection, lectures and life that you see in Montpelier is great. The atmosphere is comparable to festivals in Montreal and Switzerland. Plus, this event generates a income for the city!.

The Green Mountain Film Festival is one of the best film festivals in the region and without a doubt the best in Vermont. The quality of the programming is fantastic. The festival has had a great line up of film makers and critics like Al Maysles, Les Blank, Christine Vachon, Robin Swicord, Kenny Turan, Godfrey Cheshire and David Thomson. It's just a great festival.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

providing a top quality film festival year after year after year.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Build them a purpose built multiplex cinema with state of the art projection and sound systems.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Great people, well organized, friendly and great programming!

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

courteous and competent

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

Set up an endowment fund so that they don't have to start from scratch with their fund raising every year. It would allow the ED more time to build the festival and hire more staff.

Ways to make it better...

The sight lines in one of the cinemas was a little better

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Its' a small community with limited resources. The festival organizers do a great job but a small endowment fund (one or two million) would help them enormously.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Film festivals like this are a rarity.

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!
