Come. Join the conversation!
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the bucolic town of Washington, Virginia is the heart of a vibrant arts community. Each year, the town hosts an indie film festival like no other. The Film Festival at Little Washington is about more than what happens on the screen. Here we acknowledge the power of the movies to not only entertain but also to provoke, inspire, and enlighten.
The art of filmmaking is the beginning of a conversation that challenges us to think bigger and experience the world around us. The 2017 Festival will give movie goers a glimpse into the world around us. With films covering issues from Iran to LA to Virginia, the weekend promises to be enlightening and thought provoking.
This year we continue our mission of collaboration and education through a partnership with the George Mason University (GMU) Film and Video Studies (FAVS). On Saturday afternoon we will screen a selection of award winning GMU student films. This program will give you a look into yet another world, the world of student filmmakers. See the world through their eyes as they explore issues from their perspective.
While our focus is on the art of filmmaking, there are many other fun ways to meet filmmakers and film lovers alike. Friday night kicks off with a Opening Night Reception at Tula’s Restaurant & Bar, followed by the opening night film, Badsville, by LA director and producer April Mullen. Saturday will be entertaining and educational! A wine tasting before the feature film, Decanted, will be hosted by the filmmakers and vintner, Scott Eliff, of DuCard Vineyards. Sunday will wrap up with a champagne reception with Academy-award winning producer, Paul Wagner, at r.h. Ballard’s in Washington, VA. Wagner’s film, Good Work: Masters of the Building Arts will screen after the champagne reception. All films will be screened at the historic Little Washington Theatre.
