MNFF announces the short of the week series

The status of the 6th Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival remains up in the air due to Covid-19. It is currently scheduled for August 27-30, 2020, but organizers are waiting to see how the virus progresses before anything is certain.

While they wait, they are bringing a piece of the festival home to you. MNFF is pleased to offer a curated weekly series of great shorts from MNFF5 over the next several months. For those of you who attended the last fest, but didn’t see these films, this is your chance. And for the even greater number of you who couldn’t join in Middlebury, this is your chance as well. No more “fear of missing out!”

Beginning Monday, May 11, one film a week will be available for free for a full week on Vimeo for everyone to access with a simple click. No passwords are required. Just watch and enjoy the fine work.

The schedule is as follows:

May 11-17
