Six of the most highly acclaimed writers of military fiction met at Norwich University in April and discussed their craft before a live audience at the William E. Colby Military Writers Symposium. They were led by retired Chief of Staff of the United States Army Gordon R. Sullivan. Questions raised for debate included the following: The importance of fiction as a historic storyteller, the influence writing may have on policy makers, and the use of technology in writing and real life military. Guests include: Frederick J. Chiventone: Retired cavalry officer and author of "A Road We Do Not Know: A Novel of Custer at the Little Big Horn."; Tom Clancy: Best selling author of "The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger," and many others; Harold Coyle - Desert Storm veteran and author of "Bright Star," "Code of Honor," "Team Yankee" and his best-sellers on the Civil War, "Look Away" and "Until the End;" Stephen Coonts: Former naval aviator who flew A-6 bombers.
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.
