The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival is completely dedicated to the work of first and second time filmmakers. It is our sole focus. It is what we love to showcase. The event takes place in scenic Middlebury, Vermont in late August each year. We have booked four venues to screen the films: the historic Town Hall Theater, the recently renovated Marquis Theater, the beautiful Dana Auditorium and the historic Twilight Hall, both at Middlebury College. We anticipate screening over 100 films at MNFF5, a diverse array of features and shorts across all genres, as selected by Artistic Director Jay Craven.  Visit for more details.
