The Cavalry Group, which reviews the performance of hundreds of film festivals across the country, polled more than 100 filmmakers, journalists, and movie fans, to compile its 2020 list of “Film Festivals to Bet On.”
On its list of live festivals, Poe Film Festival checked in at number 32. Among the factors boosting our festival were our cool niche Poe vibe, our growth since we started in 2017, and our support from VCU and the Virginia Film Office. (We must remind Cavalry that our festival takes place in Richmond, not Baltimore.)
So stoked to get national kudos. Now we’re pumped to make our 2020 fest a November to remember!
