Virginia Film Festival





Give Now

Now entering its 30th year, the Virginia Film Festival is one of the nation’s leading regional film festivals. Each year, the VFF presents a diverse program of 120+ films, including first-run features, documentaries, classics, and more. The Festival regularly welcomes high profile guests, recently including Shirley MacLaine, Werner Herzog, Colin Firth, and Danny McBride, and leading cultural experts from the University and beyond who create fascinating and engaging discussions for UVA students, faculty, and the public. The Festival’s acclaimed Outreach and Education program engages community members of all ages and backgrounds all year long with free programs, special events, and partnerships with not-for-profits.

By supporting the Virginia Film Festival, you play a leading role in the Festival’s continued growth and ability to share the magic of the movies and inspire the storytellers of tomorrow.



In honor of the Virginia Film Festival’s 30th anniversary, the VFF Advisory Board has provided a generous match of $30,000. Each dollar raised will be matched (up to $30,000). Help make our 30th Festival the biggest one to date and make a gift before midnight on April 12.
