The focus turns to Vermont with "Child Care in Vermont," a local follow-up program airing in conjunction with the national PBS "Who Cares for the Children?" Discussion subjects included: how parents can become more aware of child-care services that currently exist in the state and how to assure that their children will receive quality care; how a person can become a day care provider and what the current law is; and how the business community can become involved in providing quality child-care for their employees. Remote cameras traveled to a day care center in Hinesburg and an on-site employee day care in Essex Center. Phone operators were available in the studio to provide assistance and referral information on a variety of child-care issues. Studio guests included Coleman Baker, from the State of VT Division of Licensing; DeeDee Jameson, Coordinator of the Early Childhood Development Program, University of Vermont, Burlington; and Jane DiFerdinando, Coordinator, Statewide Childcare Resource and Referral.
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.
