Mission: The Green Mountain Film Festival is presented by Focus on Film a long established Vermont organization whose purpose is :-(i) to provide public film showings of cultural, social and historic interest; (ii) to sponsor discussions of such films; and (iii) to provide an opportunity for independent filmmakers to exhibit their work.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 10,000+ tickets sold each year
Programs: The main program of Focus on Film is the annual Green Mountain Film Festival, a ten day festival with total attendance in excess of 10,000.
Ten years ago I moved to Montpelier Vt., from Buffalo, NY, which had several very good film programs (at the university and in a downtown location), but none better than the Savoy Theater (home of Focus on Film's Green Mountain Film Festival). I was happily surprised. I've donated to the film festival ever since, sponsoring several movies I am proud to have my named attached to. This is a wonderful, warmly welcoming festival. I will continue to donate to it and attend.
