What is Experimental Film Virginia?


Experimental Film Virginia is a hybrid film festival and artist residency. It offers a peer-facilitated dance film creation experience on a professional level. production approached within a unique framework of exchange, collaboration and support. The goal is to make a film you would never have made at home. For the public, it is an international cultural event unlike any other. It is intense, challenging and beautiful.


Launched in 2013 by a National Endowment for the Arts grant, Experimental Film Virginia is a celebration and an exploration, an art-soaked film-making residency for artists with live performance events for the community. It is the only film festival-artist residency where films are made in-situ and then immediately screened for the public. 


We are innovative and entrepreneurial, created by artists for artists with audience and community experience in mind. The hybrid model encourages new relationships, collaborations and supports economic growth. The educational and creative design of the program builds a narrative for cultural tourism around the arts in a small town setting. We see this as an essential part of the ecosystem of artistic exchange and sustainability. We build global connections in the arts for Virginia starting with the charming beach town of Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore.

Join us in Cape Charles this summer as an artist, audience member, participant, intern or volunteer. Stay tuned for additional events locally and internationally. We are on the move and we want to take you with us.
