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 150 Films. Four 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!
The films…the discussions…the parties! Join Festival guests and fellow film lovers to celebrate festival weekend in style at our fun and elegant Opening Night Gala and fun-filled Wrap Party.
