As a program of the University of Virginia, we are committed to offering a diverse slate of opportunities for all UVA students to engage with and participate in the Virginia Film Festival each Fall. Please find below our current offerings.
The Festival Ambassadors program gives UVA students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in event-planning and entertainment publicity.
The Festival Scholars Program offers a 6-day immersive, educational, and networking experience to UVA students around the themes of filmmaking, film industry, and film criticism.
