A Calf Grows Up interweaves History, science and technology with dairying. It's the story of dairy farms, dairy farm families, dairy foods, dairy cows. . . and their calves - how cows can eat things like coarse grass and dried corn, and take from it what they need to make milk - good food for their calves and for people too. It's the story of how milk is made into other dairy products - ice cream, butter, yogurt and cheese. And how cows help us to continue to have productive pasturelands and beautiful countrysides. The setting for the story is Vermont, where there are almost as many cattle as people - but its message relates to dairying everywhere.
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.
