A legendary Alfred Hitchcock film and one of its stars headlined the second day of the Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville.

Hundreds turned out for a showing of "The Birds" Friday night at the Paramount Theater. Actress Tippi Hedren attended the screening as well.

This is the 50th anniversary of the film. Hedren talked about her relationship with Hitchcock and her love of Charlottesville.

“I've just been blown away by this city and I love going to festivals and they're all different and I find this to be a very serious film festival, which is delightful,” said Hedren.

This is the 26th year for the Virginia Film Festival. Hundreds of films are being screened through Sunday.
