It's official: A new Crowdsourced Cinema production is coming May 14, 2021!

Sign-up to receive news about this year's film and how to sign up your own team!


Community members across Vermont produced scenes from a famous film, taking creative license with casting and film techniques, and making the scenes their own! The scenes have been assembled into a complete film that reflects our beautiful state and this unusual year. 
Thirty-six teams from Vermont and New Hampshire recreated “Cast Away” - a great film to showcase the lakes and rivers of Vermont, and a film that has many scenes that works well on a physically-distanced film set. Teams edited their scenes and composed their own music. See above dates to learn when the film will be aired on Vermont community media channels, or watch online on this page. 

Crowdsourced Cast Away Air Dates
can be found on your local community media channel - find yours here.

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