The Poe Film Festival is not currently accepting pitches or scripts other than through the contest format.

2020 sure has been a challenging year, especially for our filmmakers. But a few have made lemonade out of lemons and have produced amazing short films from the comfort of their living rooms and basements. Let’s honor these creative artists.

The 2020 Poe Film Festival will add a new award this November – Best Quarantine Film. We have many entries to choose from, and can’t wait to show our audience how to make the most out of a bad situation.

In addition to Best Quarantine Film, our festival will present awards to Best Documentary Film, Best Animated Film, Best Adaptation, Best Original Film, and Best Original Short Film. Also, we will present awards for top screenwriters in our Burning Love Screenplay Contest, and our honorary Director’s Award, for an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the arts in Virginia.

Remember, we are set to go in Richmond on November 13-15. Stay tuned for more Poe Film Festival news, and follow us on Twitter @PoeFilmFestival.
