Midd film festival excitement builds

“DUSTY & STONES,” a film about two men living in rural Africa who aspire to become U.S. country music performers, will be screened at the 9th annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival. Nearly 200 films will be shown on six screens at five different local venues around Middlebury on Aug. 23-27. 

The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival (MNFF) will mark its 9th birthday this August with at least one multiple Academy Award winner, a growing cast of attending directors and movie-goers now liberated from the shackles of COVID, and a record number of film submissions that have been winnowed down to 125 that’ll be screened at five venues in Addison County’s shire town.
