The 10th Annual MountainTop Film Festival willonce again offer a diverse program of documentary and dramatic films, addressing social and environmental issues from around the world.

These 13 "films for thought" bear witness to human rights violations and create a forum for courageous individuals on both sides of the lens to empower audiences with the knowledge that personal commitment can make a difference.

The festival strives to use film to tell human stories that have the power to move and educate. MountainTop offers an educational outreach program to area high schools and makes free daytime screenings available for interested students and teachers. Students with a valid ID get to attend festival films for free.

Opening night will feature a reception with live music and light refreshments in the lounge from 6-8PM and will also feature Vermont resident and filmmaker Ed Pincus' early work - BLACK NATCHEZ - a cinema verité account of the attempt to organize a black community in the Deep South in 1965 during the heyday of the Civil Rights Movement.

Also highlighting opening night are films about an aging gay couple who escape from a nursing home in Maine and drive to Nova Scotia on a quest to be legally married - CLOUDBURST, South Africa's struggle with Aids - INSIDE STORY, and a film about a small school in Kenya where hundreds of children are jostling for a chance for the free education newly promised by the government. One new applicant causes astonishment when he knocks on the door of the school. He is an old Mau Mau veteran in his eighties, who fought for the liberation of his country and now feels he must have the chance o fan education so long denied  even if it means sitting in a classroom alongside six-year-olds - THE FIRST GRADER.

Besides showing films from all over the world, the festival is known to provide a forum for discussion, direct action and an opportunity to meet filmmaker, community organizers and activists.
