  1. I enjoy the series immensely and look forward to it each year and month. I have been attending since the very beginning. I always learn much about topics I generally knew very little about. And thank you so much for the food that is available – a real treat. It adds to the community sense. The move to Contois is wonderful because of the space and the increased ability to see without heads and pillars in the way. This series is one of the great benefits of living Burlington. It adds to the vibrancy of our local culture.

    I have a couple suggestions to consider for next year’s film line-up, assuming there are films available on these topics. I would love to see a film about tromp l’oell and also one about the current trend in painting murals on buildings. I think a film on building murals would be of great interest to everyone because we now have numerous ones in Burlington. I appreciated the inclusion of the film on Matisse this year and would like to see the series feature one film on a visual artist each year.

    Thanks for all you do to make the series happen.

    • Marilyn,
      Thank you for the thoughtful feedback and suggestions, it inspires us as we continue our search for Season IV’s
      films. Yes, American Flatbread has been a steadfast and generous sponsor from the beginning, and we are very grateful. Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to us at the next film, it would be wonderful to speak with you.
      Best ,
      Karen, Lynda, and Andrew

  2. Like many in Burlington’s design community, I work here but live a fair distance away. I’ve enjoyed the films I’ve seen, but after experiencing a few I’ve more often made the decision to skip them, because they never start anywhere near on time and end up running way too late.
    Andrew PLEASE start the films on time. Start your opening remarks at exactly 6:30, and practice them ahead so that they don’t take more than 2 minutes max. We’ve been staring at the sponsors screen for 20 minutes – you don’t need to read them to us! We don’t need your take on the movie – we’re here to see the movie. Keep ALL speakers for the end, so that those who don’t wish to sit through them can just see the films and go home.
    All of the people I’ve gone to see these with have said the same things: false advertising about the start time, captive audience for boring speakers, etc. We just want to see the films and go home and feed our dogs.
