Filmmaker workshop coming to Stowe
Organizers of a new filmmaker workshop slated for Stowe this fall believe it could eventually grow into a major annual film festival.
Stowe Story Labs is a three-day workshop aimed at helping budding screenwriters and producers make their films and get them in front of audiences. The event will take place Saturday to Monday, Sept. 14 to 16.
David Rocchio of Stowe and River Arts executive director Steve Ames are organizing the event. They have partnered with the Vermont International Film Festival, which takes place in Burlington from Oct. 11 to 20, to promote Stowe Story Labs.

A September workshop in Vermont trains New England filmmakers in the nuts and bolts of making films.
What does it take to make a film? That was the question answered by the first Stowe Story Labs in Stowe, Vermont. During an intense weekend from September 14 -16 of workshops, panel discussions, one-on-ones and screenings with Q & As, an accomplished group of independent film industry notables schooled 16 filmmakers in story development — and, crucially — how to make a story become a film with a chance of commercial success.
