Make the most of your viewing experience with our Watch Guide!

Community members across Vermont are producing scenes from a famous film, taking creative license with casting and film techniques, and making the scenes their own! The scenes are being assembled into a complete film that is uniquely Vermont-made. 
This summer, we are recreating “Cast Away” - a great film to showcase the lakes and rivers of Vermont, and a film that has many scenes that will work well on a physically-distanced film set. Teams are editing their scenes and composing music right now! See below dates to learn when the film will be aired. We'll also share a link to watch online after the premieres.
Sign ups are closed for the summer. Email us to be included in next year's film announcement!


Stills from Cast Away: Wilson the volleyball, a dinner table with dolls, a rock calendar, a woman in the water by a raft, a team of 3 men filming, an iceskate and volleyball, a Lego figure on a raft, a man hiding behind a raft
