How to Submit Your Film
The 2017 Call for Entries is now closed.
Accepted films will be eligible for category-specific Audience Awards and Programmer’s Awards. Before submitting, please read through the details below and on our FilmFreeway listing.
If a film is accepted, press materials for the film will be required, which can include but may not be limited to: high-resolution publicity stills, filmmaker bio, or online trailer. The Virginia Film Festival does not offer “notes” or specific critique of any films not accepted for exhibition, and reserves the right to not accept a submission for any reason.
If you have any questions about submitting your film, please email VFF Programmer Wesley Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
