How lucky are we! Affordable, farm-to-table meals will once again be prepared by Robert Lionette of Morning Glory Farm. The CCC kitchen will be open for dinner Friday night, and all day Saturday and Sunday. Lighter fare like Morning Glory Farm popcorn with MV Sea Salt, and scones and other baked goods from Pie Chicks, can be found in the Hay Café, where Todd Christy of Chilmark Coffee Company will also be serving up fresh cups of joe. Share a nourishing meal with friends, filmmakers, and the community at our long tables!

Intermissions are an essential part of your MVFF experience. While you give your eyes a break between screenings, we hope you will hang out in the Hay Café, listen to live music, and enjoy the conversation. Musical performers have included local musicians such as The PickPocket Bluegrass Band (above), Jeremy Berlin, and Nate D’Angelo. Stay tuned for this year's lineup!

FIRESIDE CHATS

We’ve created a space that allows you to dig deeper, talk about taking action, and brainstorm creative ways to address the complex matters that affect us all. Not to mention that it’s fun to sit around a fire and get to know one another. Just head over to the fire pit and join the conversation.

FOOD DRIVE

This year, we have partnered with the Island Food Pantry to hold a food drive during the festival! There will be large purple collection boxes in the Chilmark Community Center and the Chilmark School. Hunger is an unfortunate reality on Martha's Vineyard. The Island Food Pantry has worked actively since 1981 to ensure food is always available for those in need. It is a 100% volunteer organization that depends on the kindness of all who live on or visit the Island. In 2017, it provided three bags of groceries each to 405 individuals and families, on 2,888 occasions. Thank you for helping us support our neighbors.
