Like many other film festivals, we at Poe are following the rise of coronavirus infections closely.
The 2020 Poe Film Festival has pushed back its dates deeper into November. With the help of our good friends at VCU’s Student Activities Board and the Institute for Contemporary Art, this year’s festival dates are now November 13-15.
While we have no reason to believe that the virus will impact our public events at that time, we will continue to monitor its progression and plan our festival in the best interests of public safety.
We also appreciate our venue sponsor, VCU’s Robertson School of Media and Culture, for its continuing help and support as we make these scheduling changes.
Thank you again for your film and screenplay submissions. We look forward to meeting all of you with a handshake or elbow bump in November.
