Vermont ETV brings together a group of experts who can field last-minute questions farmers may have about a new federal program that will pay them not to produce milk. The live program will cover the pros and cons of the hard-fought legislation. Representatives of the University of Vermont Extension Service and the Vermont Department of Agriculture will make up a panel of experts who can explain the fine print of the new law. The intent of the legislation is to reduce the national milk surplus by offering $10 per hundred-weight of milk not produced, based on a farmer's average production in previous years. It also sets up a national promotion plan. Consumers are encouraged to call in and express any concerns they may have about how the legislation will affect them at the supermarket. Guests include Stephen Kerr, Aid to Congressman James Jeffords and Minority Consultant on the House Agricultural Committee; George Dunsmore, Commissioner of Agriculture; Fred Webster, Professor of Economics, UVM.
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.
