State of the Arts
Following its successful conference on how to develop creative-economy projects in Vermont communities, held last fall at the Statehouse, the Vermont Council on Rural Development put together a DVD to assist said communities. And now the whole shebang is online. Visit www.vtrural.org/creative-economy/  for video and audio presentations, success stories and resource guides — and get crackin’ . . . Burlington College filmmakers put their best footage forward next Tuesday, April 29, at the Student Film Festival at Higher Ground in South Burlington. Prizes will be given, too, for Best in Show, Audience Favorite, and Best Use of Music. Info, www.burlington.edu  . . . Burlington pro filmmaker Rick Moulton  was recently granted the International Ski History Association Film Award for his doc Ski Sentinels, The Story of the National Ski Patrol. Congrats!
