More than 40 years before RuPaul’s Drag Race, this ground-breaking documentary about the 1967 Miss All-American Camp Beauty Pageant introduced audiences to the world of competitive drag.

VTIFF Screening: Real Genius

VTIFF at Main Street Landing 60 Lake Street, Ground Floor, Burlington, United States

An ‘80s-comedy, college-coming-of-age flick that’s more interested in cerebral matters than ways of the flesh is interesting enough. Then when you cross the outstanding director Martha Coolidge (Valley Girl, Rambling Rose) with the guys who wrote Police Academy, you get….Real Genius. Vermont comedian Max Higgins loves this movie, and he’ll tell us why. Maybe it’s […]

VTIFF Screening: West Indies: The Fugitive Slaves of Liberty

The Screening Room @ VTIFF 60 Lake Street, 1st floor, Burlington, VT

There aren’t too many movies like Med Hondo’s West Indies: The Fugitive Slaves of Liberty. From 1979, this musical dramatizes 400 years of French colonialism in Africa through song and dance. Though the story traverses oceans, the film was shot entirely on a massive replica of a slave ship built in an abandoned factory in […]

VTIFF Screening: Cries & Whispers

The Screening Room @ VTIFF 60 Lake Street, 1st floor, Burlington, VT

It’s Ingmar Bergman’s Birthday!! Since we’ve been highlighting comedians and comedies in recent weeks, it seemed like a good idea to throw in a movie that has not one single laugh or moment of levity in it anywhere. Plus, it’s Ingmar Bergman’s birthday, so…Cries & Whispers! And while it may not have laughs, it’s one […]
