On March 4, 1908, the Collinwood Elementary School burned to the ground, trapping and killing 172 school children inside.

VTIFF Zero Gravity - Most Innovative, Footage Farm - Best Archival usage
The Vermont International Film Festival is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the community and bring the world to Vermont through film.
Launched in 2014 by a group of filmmakers, archivists and concerned members of the public who wished to ensure the survival of artists’ films in Vermont, VAMP officially became a program of VTIFF in May 2015. The VAMP committee has broadened the initial concept to include all types of films and videos made by VT filmmakers or shot in Vermont.
