The 8th Annual
Brattleboro Film Festival
November 1-10, 2019
The 8th Annual Brattleboro Film Festival will take place from Friday, November 1 through Sunday, November 10, 2019 at the historic Latchis Theatre in the heart of downtown Brattleboro, Vermont. We will present films from the U.S. and around the world that inform, challenge, entertain and inspire, emphasizing viewpoints and characters often unseen in mainstream media. We invite you to join us!
Join us for a free, open-to-the-public reception at the Latchis Theatre Lobby from 5:00-6:00 pm where trailers for all 2019 films will be shown continuously.
Join us after The Pollinators for a Q&A with the director, Peter Nelson.
Peter Nelson has photographed a wide variety of feature films, commercials and documentaries in a multitude of film and video formats. His signature naturalistic style has taken him around the world to capture life as it happens for fiction and non-fiction films alike. Feature credits include Emmy award winning ART & COPY, SICKO, A TALE OF TWO PIZZAS, PIPE DREAM, SUITS and the cult New York romantic comedy ED'S NEXT MOVE which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
The Pollinators will be screening at 11am on November 2nd at the Latchis Theatre.
Join us after The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating for a Q&A with the author director of the film, Elisabeth Tova Bailey.
Elisabeth Tova Bailey’s natural history/memoir, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, recounts her year-long observations of a wild Maine woodland snail. The true story of her interspecies relationship is reaching a general international audience of both genders and all ages and is finding special homes in the fields of literature, natural history, medical humanities, and education.
The short is screening after the documentary film The Human Element at 3pm on Saturday, November 2nd. Also screens before The River and the Wall on Saturday, November 9th at 1pm.
