Another Tradition in the Offering?

Another event which could have a major impact on the economy and quality of life in Woodstock, just as the Covered Bridges Half-Marathon, October Apples and Crafts Fair, Christmas Wassail, GMHA 100-mile ride, Bookstock, Pentangle’s Summer at Six and others have proven to have, will be introduced for the first time here in early November.
The Woodstock Vermont Film Festival, in partnership with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capitol – the oldest and largest showcase for environmental films in the United States – premiers at the Billings Farm and Museum, November 11-14. It has the potential for involving many other businesses in the community in the future.
Films will be shown in the recently renovated BF&M Theater with HD digital cinema and Dolby surround-sound. Details of the seventeen films covering four days are available at www.billings or by calling (802) 457-2355.
The festival was wisely scheduled for the pre-holiday period. Already local businesses are expressing interest in tying in with it in the belief that another Woodstock first is at hand, which would raise the community’s reputation as a great place to live or visit often. Notable is the Woodstock Inn’s package which combines film showings, breakfasts, receptions and luxurious accommodations.
At the outset, the Woodstock Vermont Film Festival looks to be a winner – a tradition in the offering. We wish them success.
