In August 2018, the fourth annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival screened 51 features and 55 shorts. This month, two of the top documentaries hit silver screens around the state. Directed by Ivo Marloh, Best Documentary Feature finalist All the Wild Horses follows five international riders as they cross mountain and desert in the 650-mile Mongol Derby horse race. Director Tom Herman’s Dateline: Saigon, which won Best Documentary Feature in the fest, profiles five Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists who shed light on the early years of the Vietnam War. Some tour stops feature filmmaker Q&As, and others include only one of the two films, so be sure to visit middfilmfest.org for schedule details.
