A Vermont Romance

April 15, 2016  |   7:00 PM

Tickets: $15 all seats

Produced in 1916, A Vermont Romance was the first feature film ever made in Vermont. This extraordinary piece of folklore, commissioned by the Vermont Progressive Party, is a window through which we can view the people and landscape of Vermont one hundred years ago. It was filmed in many locations around the state, including St. Johnsbury, with a cast of amateur Vermont actors. It is a classic melodrama, the tale of Dorothy, who loses her father and the farm, then moves to Burlington to find work, adventure, and romance.

This screening of the new digitally re-mastered version, accompanied by live piano, with an original score by veteran film composer/pianist Bob Merrill, will be followed by a panel discussion with Nat Winthrop, co-producer of Freedom and Unity: The Vermont Movie; Rick Winston, film historian; and Gregory Sanford, former Vermont State Archivist. Presented by the Vermont Movie Archive Project (VAMP), a new initiative of the Vermont International Film Foundation, whose mission is to preserve and make accessible Vermont’s film heritage. The Vermont Romance Tour, which will screen the film across the state this spring, is funded in part by a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council and Vermont Public Radio, media sponsor for the tour.

Presented by the Vermont Archive Movie Project and the Vermont International Film Foundation.
