The VAFF Experience
The Virginia Film Festival is about far more than what happens on our screens. The power of the movies to entertain, enlighten, inspire, and challenge us provides a jumping off point for important discourse that is informed by and enriches the community here and beyond. Join the conversation!
Over 60 Films. Five Days. From the hottest titles of the season to exciting new discoveries and treasured classics, the VAFF program features hot tickets, hard choices, and a festival experience to remember!
Each year the VAFF welcomes a fascinating collection of guests ranging from high-profile film industry leaders to rising stars, up-and-coming directors, and cultural experts from the UVA community and beyond.
