The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival showcases the work of first and second time filmmakers. This is our sole focus. The event takes place in scenic Middlebury, Vermont, 22-25, 2019. We have four beautiful venues and anticipate screening over 100 films, a diverse array of features and shorts across all genres, as selected by Artistic Director Jay Craven. Last year we welcomed 60 filmmakers and many distinguished guests to our stages for panel discussions and film-minded conversation. To round out the Festival experience, we throw some hoppin' events including an Opening Night party, a Filmmakers-Only champagne reception, Festival Happy Hours and after parties for Passholders. Summer's Sweet Finale!


  • Starting Thursday, August 22nd, 2019, repeats every day until Sunday, August 25, 2019 — all day
