New This Year... We are starting new initiatives including workshops for students, more screenings, and a new section of 5-30 second shorts section.

Come watch cool original films and support the filmmakers at the 2012 festival! We are looking for creative and thought provoking independent dramas, comedies, documentaries, or animations that will entertain the local community. 

We will be extending the festival to a full day event. The top films will be shown to the public at The Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton under the stars. The award ceremony will take place after the Student Category during intermission and the 21+ Category at the closing of the festival. There will be showings of specific genres during the day and workshops throughout the year.
