Israel, the environment, water issues, French culture, the African diaspora, Native cultures and Edgar Allen Poe’s values are the many topics of film festivals in Richmond.
Throughout the year, these cinematic works light up the big screen around Richmond and through online services, to bring narrative and artistic tales. Many of these events seek volunteers to help with tasks from ushering to picking up filmmakers from the airport. For more information about film festivals and other events in central Virginia, check the Virginia Film Office website.
