Northern Borders stars award-winning actors Bruce Dern (Nebraska) and Geneviève Bujold (Anne of a Thousand Days, King of Hearts), and was produced with the involvement of both professionals and film students from the New England region. The film, directed by Jay Craven, was shot in Vermont and New Hampshire, and it’s based on the award-winning Howard Frank Mosher novel that was recently declared by The London Guardian as one of the “Top Ten Books Featuring Grandparents.” Set in 1956, It tells the story of ten year-old Austen Kittredge, who is sent to live on his grandparents’ Kingdom County Vermont farm, where he has wild adventures and uncovers long-festering family secrets. Director Craven, whose family has strong ties to Wellfleet and maintains a commitment to New England place-based filmmaking, has made six feature films, many of which have appeared in film festivals and venues all over the country. He will be with us for a post-screening discussion about the film and making independent movies in New England. READ MORE HERE
