WATCHING OUR MOVIE
SUNDAY, 6:30 p.m.
Chilmark Library

All weekend long, we will be making movies with kids ages two to teens. Join us for the free screening of the short film they’ve made together. The MVFF now teaches filmmaking in the Island schools and is excited to bring these workshops to the festival for the second year in a row. Celebrate the hard work that our kids and their teachers have put into creating a film in under 48 hours.
