Countdown to VFF10...T-Minus 42 Days

Wasn't it just 100 days 'til opening night a few short weeks ago? Oy! Our publicists are going to kill us.

We are extremely pleased to announce our 10th annual showcase of outstanding short films from across The Valley and around the globe! It was really important to us to include as many alumni filmmakers from over the years as possible, so you'll see some familiar names. And, we wanted to continue our global outreach by programming as many foreign films as time permitted, because you may never get to see these works of art again.

Drum roll please. Ta-da!
