Simply...the best Fest in Vermont. I think of it as the States Film fest. While some may say there are too many festivals, in fact there too many mediocre events and too few honest, ernest ones such as this.

I have been going to the Green Mountain Film Festival for about six years. They make the entire Montpelier community come to life with people from all over Vermont and beyond enjoying cinema at its best. I have been moved, delighted, surprised, shocked and overwhelmed with some of the offerings there. I particularly enjoy the workshops and special lectures and talks they plan each year with industry insiders and professionals. Restaurants are full, stores are buzzing and the sidewalks full of people talking cinema and culture and life. It has become the spring renewal I look forward to every year.
