Kay Fab and I get ready for an advance screening of Silver Linings Playbook at the 2012 Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville’s glorious Paramount Theatre.

I know what Kay Fab and I will be doing! We’ll be attending the Virginia Film Festival in beautiful Charlottesville!

For the past five years, this has been my autumn treat! Over 100 films from silent classics with live musical accompaniment to pre-release screenings of films like Black Swan, The Artist and The Descendants AND films built around personal appearances by artists like Peter Bogdanovich, Sissy Spacek, Matthew Broderick and others.

Among the featured events this year will be a screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s with a chat with star Tippi Hedren afterwards!

It all happens in theatres on the UVA campus and on the C’ville pedestrian mall including at the classic movie palace, The Paramount. Festival director Jody Kielbasa, managing director Jenny Mays, programmer Wes Harris and the rest of the VFF team really know what they’re doing. Explore the festival website and you’ll see what I mean.

Oh, one last thing: once again, I’ll have the pleasure and privilege of introducing films and leading post-film discussions. There’s nothing like a chance to talk with the filmmakers to add depth and richness to the movie-going experience.

So, mark your calendars!

  1. Joe, have a wonderful time in my old stompin’ grounds of C’ville. As you know Jody was “the man” here in Sarasota as he made great strides in putting the SFF in the spotlight! I believe he was at the helm when you showed Paperclips in Sarasota??

  2. What a great weekend. When our daughter went to UVA, the festival corresponded with Parents’ Weekend. We always attended some of the film events, and had some great times. We saw the preview of a Robert Altman film based on works by Raymond Carver. We saw some old educational films and commercials from the ’50’s and ’60’s that left all three of us in tears of laughter. It was always a great experience. Maybe Gary and I should go again sometime.
