The Virginia Film Festival is presented by the University of Virginia.

The 28th Annual Virginia Film Festival | November 5-8, 2015

The 2015 VFF Audience Award-winning documentary feature Until 20

By every possible measure, the 28th Annual VFF was an unqualified success. We were so excited to welcome Hollywood heavy hitters like Meg Ryan and Oliver Stone, famed film historian and critic Leonard Maltin, history-making writer and activist Larry Kramer, and more than 100 incredible filmmakers.

We’re proud to report that the Festival included 41 sold-out screenings, and tickets were issued to an all-time record of over 30,000 film lovers. This year’s Family Day reached over 2,700 local children and their families and saw more young people than ever before enjoy interactive experiences in the craft of film.

Another highlight? Hosting screenings, the Festival Headquarters, and the Box office in the beautiful new Violet Crown Charlottesville. Festival Director Jody Kielbasa says the theater offered “an extraordinary screening experience for our patrons.”
