Join the VAFF's Community of Supporters Today

During this difficult time, we believe that sharing diverse stories, engaging audiences across the Commonwealth, the nation, and the globe in dynamic discussion, and celebrating the art of film is more important than ever. Your gift to the Virginia Film Festival will allow us to continue to provide these opportunities for connection and celebration and allows us to further our mission. We are incredibly grateful to the community of supporters that have come back year after year, allowing the Festival to grow in size and scope, to meet new demands and challenges, and to remain a highly entertaining and essential cultural experience to our local community.

Thank you for your consideration of support of the Virginia Film Festival. Your gift takes us beyond the screen to creatively and thoughtfully engage our community in meaningful dialogue around the art of film throughout the year and lays the foundation for our annual 5-day Festival.
