Virginia Film Festival will announce special guests later this week


The 24th annual Virginia Film Festival is slated to announce some of its major guests at a press conference Wednesday.

Some of my favorite guests at fests of the past (this year’s runs November 3-6 at venues across town), have included John Waters, Matthew Broderick and Alan Ball. The starpower makes the weekend a real gas, as do regular events like the Adrenaline Film Festival (applications for which, by the way, are still open).

Before the announcement ruins all of our speculating, let’s play a game. What special guests or new films would you like to see at this year’s festival?

Just to get the ball rolling, what follows is the one-item C-VILLE Feedback VFF wishlist for 2011:

  • A special 30th anniversary screening of The Evil Dead with a Q&A with star Bruce Campbell and director Sam Raimi, featuring an extra-special after-performance of the Evil Dead musical that opens in October at Play On! Theatre.

Your go.
