100th Anniversary Screening w/Live Music
A genre-defining film for the ages, Nosferatu celebrates its 100th anniversary at the Virginia Film Festival with a special screening featuring live musical accompaniment by Matt Marshall and the Reel Music Quartet. From world-renowned director F.W Murnau, this classic piece of German cinema demonstrates the limitless possibilities of storytelling. Dare to enter Count Orlok’s castle, where the macabre takes human form and feasts on the innocent. Follow Thomas Hutter as he travels to the secluded Transylvanian castle and witnesses a nightmare come to life in the shape of a vampire. When the Count develops a craving for Hutter’s wife, Hutter must race against the clock to protect her from falling victim to Orlok’s desires. One of the first breakthroughs in gothic horror, Nosferatu’s chilling tale continues to haunt audiences even a century after its release.
Centennial screening with live musical accompaniment by Matt Marshall (UVA) and The Reel Music Trio featuring Bob Ducharme (Viola), Elizabeth Leverage-Hilles (Violin), and Madaline Marland (Bass Clarinet).
