Virginia Film Festival Presents: The Adrenaline Film Project
Movies | 10/21/2017 | 7:00PM
Now in its 14th year, the Adrenaline Film Project (AFP) is moving out of the Festival proper and heading downtown to host its annual competitive screening and awards presentations at The Paramount Theater! Also new this year, the winners of the jury, mentor, audience, and acting awards will receive a cash prize and industry badges to the 2017 Virginia Film Festival.
The Adrenaline Film Project is the Virginia Film Festival’s 72-hour, highly-caffeinated and highly-popular guerrilla filmmaking competition in which 10-12 teams of filmmakers compete for cash prizes by writing, shooting, editing, and screening their own 3-5 minute films with guidance from professional film industry mentors.
AFP provides a unique opportunity to gain professional mentorship while producing an original short film that will screen to the public. Adrenaline alum have found success in film through acceptances to film schools, submissions to Sundance, involvement in the creation of popular movies and television shows, and with starting their own production companies.
The 2017 Adrenaline Film Project is presented by Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Central Virginia and supported by The Paramount Theater, the Robertson Media Center at the University of Virginia Library, and UVA Arts Council.
