It was a picturesque scene Friday morning: the Middleburg Film Fest producers were sitting side-by-side in front of a roasting fireplace in the library of Salamander Resort. The two women, Sheila Johnson and Susan Koch, were flashing prideful smiles. Their baby was underway.
The inaugural film festival had launched a little more than 12 hours earlier with an exclusive viewing of Alexander Payne's “Nebraska” at the resort.
For Johnson, the CEO of Salamander, this was her second extravagance introduced to the cozy Loudoun County town of Middleburg in a few-month span. In August, the much-heralded Salamander opened after years of delays and setbacks.
Johnson never wavered, of course. Salamander was going to happen, and it was going to happen in Middleburg.
The same can be said for the film festival.
