ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The West Virginia FIlmmakers Festival is the original Film Festival dedicated to films by and for West Virginia. Held every fall in beautiful Sutton, West Virginia, the festival has showcased the best and brightest filmmakers from the Mountain State, and beyond. The First Festival was held in the spring of 2001 showcasing some of West Virginia's best filmmakers at the Landmark Studio for the Arts in Historic Sutton, West Virgina. In 2010 The West Virginia Filmmaker's Guild took over production of the festival.
The WVFF focuses on creating a communal atmosphere between the makers, students, and audiences of their films. We make our filmmakers our top priority by encouraging feedback, networking and workshops among the filmmakers. Filmmakers should leave our weekend with a myriad of new friends and collaborators
