The 2008 Vermont International Film Festival is coming!
This year, we have partnered with Palace 9 and will be featuring an array of independent and foreign films there as well as the Vermont Filmmakers’ Showcase at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center on the waterfront in Burlington.
The film line-up is coming together. I’m personally excited to see Happy Go Lucky at the festival. Mike Leigh is one of my favorite filmmakers and his charming — and sometimes dark — slices of British life are wonderful. Happy Go Lucky appears to be a return to form for Leigh, whose recent films Topsy Turvy and Vera Drake were specific period pieces.
All the fun happens October 23-26. Watch this space for news and updates.
