Film: MNFF Streep Week – August 2

Who doesn’t love Meryl Streep? Whether it’s the Silkwood shower that we’ve all taken or the generation-defining fabulosity of The Devil Wears Prada, Streep is an icon beyond comparison. For five nights, we have five great Streep films to enjoy along with a cash bar and grab-and-go picnic fare from our very own Jessica’s restaurant. It’s the perfect way to wile away a late summer night with friends and family. This event is a part of the Middlebury New Filmmaker Festival and the brainchild of the inimitable Lloyd Komesar.

He will be accompanied by a percussion section from the Berklee School of Music in Boston.

Two sets: 7:30 and 8:45. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased through the Town Hall Theatre Box Office or at the door (cash only at the door).

Theater: American Dreaming – August 18 – August 20 

After receiving over 100 submissions from playwrights across the country, Middlebury Acting Company has selected three vibrant new plays that address the question: What does the American Dream mean today? The festival aims to amplify three exciting new voices in theater, support the chosen playwrights as they continue to develop their plays, and invite the community to engage with the new play development process through staged readings, moderated talkbacks with the playwrights, and playwriting workshops. This is the first festival of its kind in the area – we hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be an exciting weekend!

Film: MNFF Opening Night After Party – August 24

Guaranteed to be one of the most stimulating and entertaining arts and culture evenings in Middlebury this summer, creative locals and accomplished auteurs come together under the Swift House Inn tent for conversation, networking, nibbles, cocktails, and live music.
