Friday & Saturday, May 18-19—WOODSTOCK—The ninth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at the Billings Farm & Museum begins its new summer series with the award-winning documentary, “Ex Libris – The New York Public Library,” on Friday, May 18 and Saturday, May 19, at 6 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. Curator and director Jay Craven will attend the screening and lead a discussion. All films are open to the public and accessible to people with disabilities. Reservations are recommended.
“Ex Libris” does more than go behind the scenes of one of the world’s greatest knowledge institutions. It shows its role as a center of community and an exemplar of morality, accessibility, democracy and calm – even as it welcomes diverse people and ideas. The film won top honors at the 2017 Venice International Film Festival and was named to the official shortlist for the 2018 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Tickets prices are $9-$11.
Billings Farm & Museum is located one-half mile north of the Woodstock village green on Route 12. Visit billingsfarm.org/filmfest.
