The Brattleboro Film Festival takes over the screen at the Latchis Theater one week a year to show original movies and this year, the festival has added a category to include young movie makers.
Sadie Holliday is a Brattleboro Union High School graduate who studied film at UVM and she serves as the festival's director for its newly added Young Filmmakers Showcase.
In its inaugural year, the festival received 40 submissions from filmmakers with Vermont connections who are under the age of 25.
Holliday talked with VPR about the festival as a whole and the kinds of films younger people submitted to the Young Filmmakers Showcase.
The Brattleboro Film Festival goes through Sunday, November 9th.
