Valkyrie International Film Festival

Thu, Mar 23 - Sun, Mar 26
All Day
Free
Screening Room Cinema Cafe • 3131 Sheridan Dr., Amherst 14226

Description

Valkyrie International Film Festival (VIFF) spotlights films directed by women of all backgrounds and advances the cause of women in film. Held every year in March (Women’s History Month), VIFF was founded by Tamar Lamberson and her daughter, Kaelin Lamberson. VIFF seeks impactful films in all genres. If a woman directed it, we want to see it! VIFF will screen narrative, documentary, and experimental shorts and features. The only requirement is that every film selected for screening must have been directed by a woman.

VIFF will be held at The Screening Room Cinema & Arts Café, a boutique digital cinema located in Amherst, New York, just outside Buffalo. The Screening Room features a large screen and surround sound, with mixed dining room and theater seating. The venue is a staple of the indie film scene in Western New York. Beer and wine are available. VIFF will only hold in-person screenings.

VIFF will serve as a platform for female directors to come together, support each other’s work, and discuss the challenges and advances of women in film. The programmers will present awards, but view the event as a celebration rather than a competition.

VIFF will be held during Women’s History Month each year, and we have an abbreviated submissions period for our inaugural event. We are accepting all female-directed films, of all genres, completed 2019 – present.
