Virginia Film Festival Comes to End; Highest Attendance Yet

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of people in Charlottesville spent the weekend watching movies. The Virginia Film Festival called it a wrap Sunday night.

The festival's director said attendance topped last year's record-setting audience numbers. While the official totals won't be in for a few days, the director estimates a 10 percent increase in attendance this year.

"I think it's really, really fortunate we had a wonderful film program this year and on top of that we had a number of films that really threw a spotlight on Virginia film makers and Charlottesville film makers," festival director Jody Kielbasa said.

The film festival expects to release final attendance numbers by Tuesday.
