The Virginia Film Festival is getting ready to open the curtain on its 25th year. On Tuesday, the festival released the names of more than 120 films that will be screened during this year's festival from November 1-4.
"Not Fade Away" will be the opening film. There will also be works from some young students in Albemarle County as part of a special program. There is no overall theme this year, because the festival wanted to highlight a wider range of genres.
With this being an election year, politics will make a play onto the big screen.
Jody Kielbasa, with the Virginia Film Festival, said, "One of the highlights of the festival will be our screening of 'All the President's Men' in association with the Miller Center to mark the 40th anniversary of Watergate. And I'm very pleased to announce we will have Carl Bernstein joining Bob Woodward on stage for a conversation immediately following the film screening."
Larry Sabato with the Center for Politics will host a panel discussion with Max Kennedy, son of Robert Kennedy, following the screening of the film "Ethel".
Dave Matthews band violinist Boyd Tinsley's experimental film called "Faces in the Mirror" will also be featured.
There are plenty of options for the entire family, including a screening of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" for its 75th anniversary.
