Welcome to Summer Film!

A sizzling mix of delightful comedies, indie dramas, iconic concerts, heart-pounding docs and adventure on the high seas. Music, animation, shorts, comedies and freebies dominate the slate with the connective theme of FUN and deliver a good time for all.

The season opens with an exclusive screening of Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story with co-director Ryan Suffern in person (Jul 2). Shot at the event's 50th anniversary with IMAX cameras and drones, the veteran filmmakers capture the passion, thrill and soul of one of the world's great festivals. The party continues a week later with a free, outdoor screening of this year's Best Documentary Summer of Soul on the Dartmouth Green (Jul 9). Stay tuned for the Kid Flicks shows (also free), an intimate behind-the-scenes look of the Shanghai String Quartet and a French comedy with donkeys! Along the way, marvel at the craft on display in the Sundance Shorts, dive in with One Ocean Film Tour and meet Vermont filmmaker Jay Craven as he presents his latest work Martin Eden.
