A big thank you Bettie Pardee for featuring Terri Conners, our Executive Director, in her latest blog post as a “Newport Tastemaker,” we totally agree!

Here’s a snipet of the post:

“Unstop-ably chic, fun, smart, and quick-witted, Terri Conners, Executive Director of newportFILM, is a do-er extraordinaire. Proof of this can be seen in Newport periodically throughout the year plus every Thursday evening during the summer when the right ingredients come together to make magic: intriguing thought-provoking films; Terri and Artistic Director, Andrea van Beuren; their devoted and talented staff; and unbelievably gorgeous, stunning venues such as Doris Duke’s Rough Point, Rosecliff, The Elms, Norman Bird Sanctuary, Marble House, Goat Island, Redwood Library and Newport Art Museum.

newportFILM, believing in the power of documentary film to inspire, motivate, and entertain, features documentaries curated from film festivals around the world and has screened Oscar winners and nominees like “What Happened Miss Simone?,” “Searching for Sugar Man,” “Finding Vivian Maier,” “Undefeated,” and many more.”
