The 2017 Vermont International Film Festival (VTIFF) released its lineup, and recent creative media graduate, Jeremy Lee MacKenzie, made the cut. His featured piece, “Hidden Blueprints,” is a hybrid documentary. The film will be screened on Friday, Oct. 20 at 3 p.m. in the Main Street Landing Black Box in Burlington. It tells the history of his wood scrollwork collection that he designed and hid while he was in prison, and the powerful transformation it created in his life.

VTIFF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the community through film. The entire festival takes place from Friday, Oct. 20 to Sunday, Oct. 29. For more information about “Hidden Blueprints” or this year’s programming, please visit the festival’s website.
