Before the Fall and Genuine Fraud were the holiday inspo (no private jets or stolen identities though) and then we discovered there were gorgeous indie bookshops to visit. @dbinks it's global! the recco by Bunch of Grapes of an island YA author is Alexandra Coutts' Young Widows Club: 17 year female protagonist, widow. I could have bought for the jacket alone (embossed wedding rings) and I'm enjoying this well crafted story about grief and growing up. Next up, another local author Jennifer Tseng, and her tale of an island librarian who gets involved with a teenage boy 🔥 #vineyardvisitor (photo inspo @prim_arm)

The #manhattanshortfilmfestival took place last week at the #mvfilmcenter. Four nights + hundreds of votes and viewers and #marthasvineyard decided that "Viola, Franca" was the best film in the program. The winner of the entire #filmfestival was the Georgian film "8 Minutes." It was an exciting four nights and it's interesting see how the Vineyard's taste in film differs from the Global audience. Hope you can join us next year!
Nick Mason, the Founder of the Manhattan Short Film Festival, interviewed audience members as they left the theater last night. He's compiling interviews from across the globe, asking audience members which film they voted for and why. It's the 20th year of the festival, but Nick's first visit to MV and the Film Center. He'll be with us again tonight at 7:30pm! #manhattanshortfilmfestival#marthasvineyardfilmcenter#marthasvineyardfilmsociety
