CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

The 31st annual Virginia Film Festival officially kicked off on Thursday and for the next few days, movie buffs have the perfect chance to catch a new movie or documentary.

For the rest of the week, the festival is screening 150 films. The festival is a fan-favorite with artists from all over Virginia showcasing some of their best work.

People can catch the productions at several places around Charlottesville throughout the weekend. It includes a wide variety of categories, including foreign films from south Asia and documentaries. People might also get a chance to meet the mastermind behind some of the films they watch.

One of the filmmakers said a movie is the best way to tell a story.

“The way that we as people interpret things is always through stories,” said filmmaker Tim Johnson. “We are drawn in by plot and characters and all that sort of stuff and so as a way of communicating things going on around us, it’s really the most engaging medium, I think.”

The festival started on Thursday, but the big screen event is the movie “Green Book” which plays at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

The festival runs until Sunday. Tickets can be found here.
