Review for Focus on Film, Montpelier, VT, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As always, a great festival. I was disappointed that there were no films from Africa, but I enjoyed "The Lemon Tree" quite a bit. I LOVE the fact that the Savoy is a 35mm venue and I wish there could be another 35mm venue for the TRUE CLARITY of silver nitrate. I really enjoyed "The Heretics" and "Secret of Kells" as well. The Pavillion had nice seating, but the projection cut off about 1/3 of the film image. Sacrilege! Thanks to EVERYONE--organizers, volunteers, board, and all, for a great 10 days in Montpelier! I look forward to it every year.

Great diversity of films from all over the world.

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

Install more 35mm projectors in town and ship in 35mm prints!!

Ways to make it better...

Ushers at City Hall had little flashlights for latecomers.

Money, I'm guessing.
