100 Days to VFF12

It’s hard to believe that we’re about 100 days away from our next edition on November 7-11.  We’ve got great things in the works, and a lot more to do.

With our submissions period now ended, we’ve received a bunch of films in various genres, and have begun evaluating them.  Our screening committee watches all films in their entirety, and votes on them for creative and technical ambition and accomplishment.  Once we make our final selections, we email all applicants with feedback. 

We look forward to putting together a great program of films and other activities, including parties, panels, and presentations.  If there’s anything you’d especially like to see us do, let us know.  If you’re interested in volunteer or internship possibilities, send us a note:

We aim to announce the program by end of August, and have tickets for sale online by end of September.

We’d like to welcome Production Hub as a new sponsor.

This year we’ll be at the Laemmle NoHo 7, a brand new, all digital, state of the art facility in North Hollywood.  Incidentally, while we’re 100 days out from the festival, it’s also the 100th anniversary of Universal Studios, located down the street from the Laemmle, which is named after the founder of Universal.  Small world!

Stay tuned for more announcements.
