VAFF 18 Annual Announcement

VAFF turns 18 this year and the festival is going to be bigger and better than ever! Join us for some exciting screenings this summer as we ramp up to the VAFF 18 festivities in November. Our theme this year is “What’s Your Perspective?” - a question that calls upon our collective past and present, and how we interact with one another in society. Accompanying this theme, we’re creating our 18th year artistic campaign that promises to be edgy, visually stunning, and thought provoking. Get a behind-the-scenes look at our recent photo shoot HERE.

Be sure to check out our Instagram, Facebook, and our new website often to keep up with all the exciting updates!
