I'll be speaking this coming Monday, September 17 at 1-3 PM at the University of Vermont's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute on Route 5 in Dummerston VT, just north of Brattleboro. The Brattleboro Lecture Series Fall 2007 is underway, and I'm launching their fall series "Made In Vermont: Films and Filmmakers" with an overview of Green Mountain Cinema from the silents to the digital era of filmmaking -- a full century of Vermont movies.
The host of this program is Tatiana Schreiber, organizer of the Westminster Festival of Film by Local Artists and of the Brattleboro Women's Film Festivals; Tatiana has hosted two of my previous Vermont film retrospective lectures at the Westminster West Library (a three-hour overview of Green Mountain Cinema and an overview of experimental and underground filmmaking in Vermont). Monday's session will be a revised and shortened version of the longer three-hour program, featuring some material I've never incorporated before for other venues.
In case you're in the area and care to attend (see the link, above, for the specifics on cost, etc.), here's the directions:
The Learning Collaborative is located just north of Brattleboro on Route 5 between Vermont Exit 3 and Exit 4 of I-91.
We are 1.8 miles north of the rotary at Exit 3 (Brattleboro).
We are 4.1 miles south of Exit 4 (Putney).
Look for a single story brick building on the west side of the road. Many people know it as "the old regional library." Parking and one doorway are at the back of the building. Handicapped accessible parking, ramp and doorway are at the north end of the building.
The rest of the week is Center for Cartoon Studies teaching work, and drawing my ass off!
Have a great weekend, one and all...
