Welcome NEA Panelists

It is our pleasure to submit a grant application to the NEA Grants for Arts Projects: Media Arts track in support of the 37th annual Virginia Film Festival to be held in the fall of 2024. As described in our project narrative, the NEA’s funding would support visiting guest artists’ stipends, travel, and accommodations as well as screening venue rental and associated costs. We describe in our grant application the deep impact this funding will have on guest artists’ involvement in the VAFF and on our engagement with community members. Below you will find links to three additional work samples that we hope will further illuminate what makes our film festival and our guests’ experience so unique.

Thank you for your consideration,
Jody Kielbasa
Festival Director and Vice Provost for the Arts at UVA
