Tickets are $20 and you can buy them in advance online or at the door. If you buy your tickets today, please take a screenshot of your receipt to show proof of purchase at the door. 



Stick around after the film screening for a Vermont Women Filmmakers Showcase, presented by Media Factory and Vermont Production Collective.

Vermont is home to many talented female-identifying filmmakers -- and we are proud to highlight some of them tonight! This collection of excerpts from our community members may even inspire you to make your own film. 

Media Factory is a regional community media center that provides the tools, training, space and access to distribution that give you the power to share your story.

The Vermont Production Collective is grassroots organization connecting the film, video, photography, sound, and graphics industries in Vermont.

Films feature strong women, powerful images, and impactful language. Stories reflect the diverse perspectives of the filmmakers and their subjects. We recommend age 13+ for the 2022 Season films.
