Front Porch Forum

FPF is the focus of a new independent documentary from Canadian filmmaker, Peter Strauss: The Story of Vermont's Quiet Digital Revolution.

The film follows the stories of several FPF members, each from different walks of life. How does participation on their local forums transform them and their communities?

The documentary debuted in Vermont at the Vermont International Film Festival in late October 2018 to an enthusiastic audience. Since then, we have brought many screenings throughout the state of Vermont as well as to upstate New York and continue to add screenings when requested.
