Now in its 13th year, the Martha's Vineyard Film Festival has become an annual cultural rite of spring. The snows have melted, Daylight Saving Time has begun; now into the mix add a bit of enlightenment in the form of films and conversations at the Chilmark Community Center. The festival runs through Sunday, March 17.

This year there are 14 movies, 12 of which are documentaries, covering a variety of subjects but are held together by the common purpose of the festival screening committee — to get audiences to think.

Festivalgoers are guaranteed full and happy stomachs, too, thanks to the cooking expertise of Chris Fischer and his on site meals.
