Woodstock film fest hosts MNFF tour

Saturday, Feb. 9, 3 p.m.— WOODSTOCK— The Middlebury New Filmmakers Fest Vermont Tour will play the Billings Farm & Museum on Saturday, Feb. 9. As part of the Woodstock Vermont Film Series, “All the Wild Horses” will screen at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., with the film’s director, Ivo Marloh, attending and participating in a Q&A following each screening with Jay Craven, MNFF’s artistic director.  A “meet the filmmaker” reception will be held in between screenings with a cider tasting offered by Vermont Cider Company.

A highly dramatic and visually stunning feature documentary that follows five international riders from the USA, Canada, South Africa, Ireland and the UK as they compete in the Mongol Derby horse race. This multi-horse, multi-station race over 1,000 kilometers of Mongolian steppe is considered the longest and toughest horse race on the planet. The film was the winner of the Feature Film Award at the Galway Film Festival; as well as a finalist for Best Documentary Feature category in the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival.
