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

Today, Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond announced that its Monroe Park campus will have a phased reopening for students, with fall classes starting on August 17. What does this mean for the Poe Film Festival, you ask?

Our festival venues are VCU theaters – at the beautiful new Institute for Contemporary Art and at the VCU Student Commons Theater. We are exploring options to feature a live festival at these theaters, assuming we can comply with local restrictions on social distancing, etc.

Keep your fingers crossed. If everyone behaves (a big “if”), we can hold a tremendous 2020 festival (without Zoom). A big thanks to all of our filmmakers for their patience and understanding during these difficult days.
