The Alexandria Film Festival announced it will offer September and October events ahead of its 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.”
Starting September 16, The Human Trial, a feature documentary about finding a cure for type 1 diabetes, will be available to screen virtually for $10 Viewers will go on an intimate journey inside a clinical stem cell trial as patients (including the filmmaker) and scientists put themselves on the line to be first.

On Thursday, October 6 at the Patagonia Old Town Store, the festival will present an in-person
screening of Living Wine, with the filmmaker on-hand to take questions from the audience, and a special wine tasting. The feature documentary follows natural winemakers from Northern
California who create exceptional wines through innovative, sustainable, and regenerative
farming and without chemical additives. Tickets are available at two price points: $20 for young
professionals between the ages of 21 and 30 and $35 for the rest of us. Seating at this exclusive, in-person event is limited to 75 people. Doors open at 6:00 pm. “Capacity is very limited, so we expect the event to sell out quickly,” added Sanders.
