Island Winter DVD Jacket

Experience Winter on the island of Vinalhaven located on Maine’s Penobscot Bay. Meet the hardy, year-round residents who stick it out for the coldest months of the year. Learn about boat building, and discover how the lobster industry keeps busy during the off-season.

Meet Filo Dyer and learn a thing or two about building a boat. Experience a community bean supper and linger on the cold beauty of a Winter morning. Share in how artists John Wulp and Michele O’Keefe explore winter in their paintings. There is ice boating, ice skating, and the warmth of life long friendships.


Island Winter was produced by John Gfroerer of Accompany Films.
