Movie tickets

Brattleboro: The Women's Film Festival is offering a holiday special on film fest tickets. Film buffs, film fans, feminists, all genders welcome.

Hunger banquet

Putney: Putney School students will host an Oxfam Hunger Banquet Benefit on Dec. 11 at 6 p.m. At this interactive event, the place where you sit, and the meal that you eat, are determined by the luck of the draw — just as in real life some of us are born into relative prosperity and others into poverty. The event will take place at the Putney Central School on Westminster West Road. The banquet is a fundraising event for Oxfam America and the Putney Foodshelf. Suggested donations are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and/or food donations for the Putney Foodshelf. For a successful event, the hosts need to know how many will be attending, so please reserve your place by emailing
