    58 Barre St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA

    Film instructor Rick Winston will present a three-session seminar on the history of American independent film, to be presented at the Montpelier Senior Activity Center on three consecutive Mondays (November 20, November 27 and December 4, from 6:30 to 9:00).

    As long as “Hollywood” has existed, there has also been a rich vein of independent films made by uncompromising and often brilliant filmmakers unconcerned with financial rewards. The first session will cover such little-known pioneers of the era 1920-70 as Oscar Micheaux, Sidney Meyers, Maya Deren, Morris Engel, Ruth Orkin, and Leo Hurwitz. The “indie explosion” of the early 80s, that featured the work of Spike Lee, Jim Jarmusch, and John Sayles, will be the focus of the second session, while the third will cover from the 90s to the present day.

    The cost will be $40 per session or $100 for all three sessions. For more information, please contact Rick at 454-7103 or through email, at <winsrick@sover.net>

    Owls are some of our most beloved, yet seldom seen birds. Of the seven owl species that can be regularly encountered in Vermont, the migratory Short-eared Owl is one of the most sought after by birders. Early winter is a great time to search for Short-eared Owls when they can be found hunting over large open fields at dusk. We will travel to Dead Creek WMA to view hunting Short-eared owls. Afterwards we will visit nearby spots in search of Northern Saw-whet, Eastern Screech, Long-eared, Barred, and Great Horned Owls. Pre-registration is required and the event is limit to 20 participants.
