In November 1927, Vermont faced the worst natural disaster ever to befall the rural state. A huge flood destroyed over 600 farms and hundreds of businesses. The loss of track and trains made it the worst disaster in railroad history. The floodwaters reached 18 feet high! Archival footage and interviews with survivors tell how Vermonters persevered.
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.
