Event Details

Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival comes to the
Vergennes Opera House with two
BEST OF THE FEST Films

The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival (MNFF) is bringing two of their 2017 Best of the Fest award-winning films to various theaters and town halls across Vermont and the Vergennes Opera House is pleased to be one of the chosen few. By offering its engaging films across a wide swath of Vermont, MNFF hopes to reach new audiences around its home state. We will screen the short "An Autobiography" first, followed by the feature film "Bombshell: The "Hedy Lamarr Story." 

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

Hedy LamarrAlexandra Dean’s brilliant documentary film tells the story of the celebrated Hollywood star, Hedy Lamarr, who secretly devised groundbreaking technologies during WWII that contributed to the later development of cell phones, Bluetooth and WIFI. “Bombshell” won the Audience Award – Best Feature at MNFF3 and was also the recipient of MNFF’s inaugural Clio Visualizing History Prize for the Advancement of Women in Film. (90 minutes)

 

An Autobiography

An Autobiography film shortMari Mantela’s warm and sharply observed Finnish comedy lovingly portrays a take-charge woman on the brink of retirement, who knows a lot about the inner workings of cars but very little about herself. "An Autobiography" took home the Audience Award - Best Short at MNFF3. (36 minutes)

 

 

 

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students (18 or younger) and are available online now.

A grand re-opening in 1997 welcomed the public back into the historic community space.
