    MONTPELIER — The Vermont College of Fine Arts has appointed screenwriter Brandon Cole to its new film school faculty.

    In a statement, the school said Cole and actor John Turturro have collaborated on many projects, most notably their critically acclaimed film “Mac,” for which Turturro won the Camera d’Or prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

    “We’re pleased to have a screenwriter of Cole’s caliber joining our film faculty,” said Thomas Christopher Greene, the college’s founding president, in the statement. “This film school is already attracting top talent from around the world.”

    Cole also collaborated with the independent film director Alexandre Rockwell, whose film “In the Soup” won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
