2012 Green Mountain Film Festival

Tonight was opening night of the Green Mountain Film Festival!

I’ve got nine tickets and three volunteers shifts lined up. Here are the films I’m hoping and planning to see:

Being Elmo

How can you resist this story about the actor behind (or under?) Elmo?


This kids life seems destined for no-wheres-ville or stardom. Either way, a funny journey.

Gen Silent

GLBT eldercare. This was one of my must-see’s.

How To Start a Revolution

You know, ’cause I was thinking about doing that.

In Good Time: The Piano Jazz of Marian McPartland

I always think that this woman annoys me. Then I find myself listening to her whole show. She’s addictive.

Lost Bohemia

I didn’t even know there were studios above Carnegie Hall. And who knew what characters lived in them?


This piano tuner has amazing skills.

Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls

Twin, yodeling, lesbian, comedic New Zealanders. ‘Nuff said.

The Green Mountain Film Festival is the beginning of spring in Montpelier in my mind, even though it sometimes snows during the Festival. I previewed the Festival, and more films, in the Feb 16 issue of the Montpelier Bridge (Page Down about eight times to find it).

So get out and check out the GMFF this week.
