Virginia Film Fest will announce special guest tonight

A couple of brief updates this morning on the local arts:

The Virginia Film Festival‘s Director Jody Kielbasa will unveil the festival’s new logo tonight, "as well as making a significant announcement regarding a festival guest for this coming year." Pick up a C-VILLE and check out the Feedback column, or return here for an update after tonight’s pre-Spinal Tap conference.

Ever seen a beautiful, handmade book and wonder where it came from? Probably the The Virginia Arts of the Book Center, which needs your help moving on Wednesday from its Ix building location. Ever wonder if you could make books too? They sell off some of their gear Saturday, where you can buy the kinds of artisan bookmaking stuff you never even knew you wanted: "We’ll have shop furniture, books, ephemera, lead type we can’t store any more, and assorted treasures…including a Chinese typewriter (not making that up!)."

All this, to say nothing of the "bolts of buckram cloth." The sale is Saturday from 1-5pm at 977 Second St.

Who would you like to see at this year’s Virginia Film Festival?
