Vermont International Film Festival

Burlington, VT 05402


The Vermont International Film Festival is VTIFF’s flagship event. It takes place during the last 10 days in October on Burlington, Vermont’s waterfront.

The festival is curated by a programming committee and the Executive Director and does not accept submissions. The purpose of the festival is to present a wide panorama of international and national independent cinema.

The festival program this year will represent a few of the essential issues that have always, and still do, concern committed journalism and its impact on the public. It will also focus on how news media has changed over the past 50 years – radio, print, Cable, new media in its various forms. The films will be a combination of fiction and documentaries, both classical and contemporary.

An essential component of the festival is the dialog surrounding the films. A selection of filmmakers and journalists will attend and participate in discussions and live Q&As. The 12 films will be offered in pairs with a single discussion for each pairs. Fran Stoddard, Van Dora Williams and Traci Griffith will be moderating.
