We’re adding a new blog feature to our Middlebury New Filmmakers website – where I’ll offer a regular sampling of thoughts related to the work we do, the films we show, the role of cinema, my own filmmaking – and probably more. Post-pandemic, so much is in play. Will audiences re-convene, as they have, to celebrate cinema and participate in these unique moments of shared community. What films will resonate? Do we bring new perspectives in all of this, in terms of how we respond to films or what we feel is urgent or relevant or aesthetically engaging? I’m looking forward to exploring some of this and will welcome your comments, too.
We’re looking forward to seeing our friends at our upcoming festival, August 25-29 in Middlebury. We’re putting together an exciting mix of films, filmmakers and special guests. It will be fun to catch up.
