Rebuilding a Strong Financial Foundation

During the last 3 years, as the challenges to stay relevant and connected mounted, MNFF stepped up and presented MNFF6: ONLINE, a successful virtual Festival in August 2020 that we truly enjoyed creating for our audiences around the world.  Next came Split/Screen, the monthly multi-film online series that brought you a wide variety of excellent films to sample and savor.  In the summer of 2021, as the pandemic seemingly receded here in Vermont, we presented the MNFF Sunset Series, outdoor screenings of Martin Scorsese classics under a tent, as we all began to socialize once more around film.  And then our in-person 7th Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival in August 2021 became a resounding success, adhering to a strict set of health and safety protocols and offering a wide array of terrific films and outdoor social events.

In the winter of 2022, we jump started the MNFF Vermont Tour, taking a pair of great feature films all around the Green Mountain State over one amazing weekend. In early August 2022, we again staged the MNFF Sunset Series and presented a week of classic Meryl Streep films outdoors under a tent and soon thereafter presented the 8th Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival, August 24-28, a joyous five day in-person event that offered an enormous number of film choices and social events for our audiences to sample and enjoy .

Now, we are actively planning for the MNFF Vermont Tour in late March, the MNFF Sunset Series in early August and the 9th Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival August 23-27. And we are launching our MNFF Travel Fund in January 2023 to assist filmmakers in getting to the Fest by partially defraying the cost of their airfare to Burlington International Airport from far flung domestic and international cities.

All of this programming, of course, requires financial support, now more than ever.  Like many non-profit organizations, we truly count on your generosity, as we emerge steadily from the uncertainties of life in a pandemic and actively rebuild.  We understand that many other incredibly worthy non-profits have significant needs. But, we truly hope you’ll join our MNFF Circle of Friends and help us fashion a strong and enduring financial foundation for MNFF and all the other initiatives we undertake. Thank you so much!
