ALEXANDRIA, VA – On Sep. 2, 2022, the Alexandria Film Festival announced it will offer September and October events ahead of its annual film festival, November 10-13, which will combine in-person and virtual screenings.

“We’re excited to bring deeply engaging films to the Alexandria community and beyond ahead of our 16th annual festival,” said Dara Sanders, chair of the festival. “Our ability to offer this back-to-back programming is thanks to our generous partners Patagonia Old Town and Abramorama.”

The Alexandria Film Festival brings high-quality short and feature-length films, documentaries, filmmaker panels, and arts presentations to the port city of Alexandria, Virginia and beyond. The festival highlights the talents of local, national, and international filmmakers in an acclaimed travel destination within eyesight of the nation’s capital, and this year is no exception.

Two screenings will be offered prior to November’s event. Buy your tickets now!
