Last weekend, I returned to yet another film festival that I love, and that is the Virginia Film Festival. Created in 1990, the festival has become a staple of Virginia, regularly holding its event on UVA’s campus in Charlottesville. Never a stranger to landmark films and terrific guests, the festival has featured films such as NEBRASKA, BLACK SWAN, and THE DESCENDANTS to name a few. Additionally, the festival has had the likes of Jimmy Stewart, Morgan Freeman, Vanessa Redgrave, Anthony Hopkins, Sandra Bullock, Nicolas Cage, Gena Rowlands, Sigourney Weaver, William Styron, Tippi Hedren, Ross McElwee, Matthew Broderick, Will Forte, Mia Wasikowska, Barry Levinson, David Dastmalchian, Ashley Judd, Jenna Elfman, and Patrick Wilson all come as special guests through the years.Not to be outdone by past years, the 2015 edition featured an impressive lists of guests all its own, including director Oliver Stone, actress Meg Ryan, Cherry Jones, Bill Plympton, as well as many more!
Aside from the great films and guests, the festival-also like prior years-put on a great party (see below) to conclude the festival. So, all in all, the point is, if you enjoy film and love discussing them with the artists behind them, then the Virginia Film Festival is a can’t miss event! Now, with all that said, stay tuned, as many of the exclusives from the festival are soon to follow!
