ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Williamsburg International Film Festival, voted top 20 coolest film festival by MovieMaker Magazine, is the film component of WILLiFEST. WILLiFEST was established to provide a platform for the creative visions of today's emerging artists of all disciplines. The film and music festivals are opportunities for artists to enhance their careers by exposing their films and music to a powerful audience, gaining crucial media exposure and strengthening industry relationships. In the LiVE it UP! Pavilion, Donna Drake, a nationally syndicated TV talk show host, interviews filmmakers and local celebrities. The Filmmakers' Lounge provides filmmakers a space to promote their films and network with each other in between their screenings.

In addition to red carpet premieres, the festival features several film competitions. A Screenplay competition rounds out the offerings. The closing night award ceremony will honor award winners in each category. At WILLiFEST, we pride ourselves on elevating the filmmaker's experience.
