Kudos to Tom and Sharon of the Virginia High School League for their outstanding production in Charlottesville last week of the VHSL Film Festival. We enjoyed every minute.
Thirty-two official selection films from 34 participating high schools across the Commonwealth were shown to a packed house at Piedmont Virginia Community College. Remarkable experimental films, animations, documentaries, and narrative short films entertained a spirited audience of students, parents and film teachers.
Two of our Poe Film Festival directors scouted the selection of films and listed about 15 to be invited for a special screening during our festival weekend in October.
We can’t wait to share these fresh stories, original and emotive in the Poe style, with our statewide audience of film industry actors, directors, producers and creatives. Congratulations to all of these accomplished young filmmakers. A bright future awaits!
