After months of careful deliberation with local designers, the Virginia Film Office is excited to present a sleek, streamlined new website. You will still find it at — all are encouraged to explore! The project was a collaboration between the Richmond designers Brian Landis of The Hatchery! and Eric Gordon of Hot Brain.

A few highlights:

The new website returns to the retro Virginia is for (Film) Lovers logo, and our new home page comes alive with stunning Virginia locations and some kind words from recent productions. It also features refined content for the Locations, Filmography and all of the supporting pages. We encourage the film community to explore our “For Virginians”, “Resources”, and “Filmography” pages. The hotline remains a primary feature with updates that make finding what you’re looking for much simpler.  All production opportunities, casting calls, festivals and events are encouraged to submit via email at

In speaking about the project, Film Office Director Andy Edmunds remarked: “We were so impressed by Brian and Eric’s commitment to this overhaul; it is grounded in a deep appreciation for what our office has accomplished and hopes for the future of film in Virginia. We are so happy with the outcome.”
