Charlottesville, VA, November 3, 2023 – Light House Studio is thrilled to announce that the 19th annual Adrenaline Film Project will be held November 8-11, 2023 at the Vinegar Hill Theatre, our locally-owned, historical, and state-of-the-art community film center. Eleven talented, diverse teams (ages HS to adult) will spend 72 hours writing, filming, and editing short films in this one-of-a-kind workshop.
The final films will premiere at the Adrenaline Film Project Screening on Saturday, November 11th at 8:00pm at the Vinegar Hill Theatre. Tickets are available for the public through Eventbrite. The screening concludes with an awards presentation which will include: the Judges Choice Award, Mentor Selection Award, Audience Award, and Actors Award. All screening attendees can participate in the judging process by voting for their favorite film.
This year’s mentors include AFP founder and Directors Guild of America award nominee Jeff Wadlow, Emmy award winning producer Steve Robillard, Independent Spirit award nominee Han West, and Light House Studio’s Program Director Rachel Lane.
Our panel of judges is composed of film industry professionals: Joshua Blum, Founder of Washington Square Films, Jocelyn Diaz, Executive Producer for HBO Max’s Season 1 of House of Dragon, and Margarette Griffin who oversees Netflix’s Glamorous for CBS Studios.
The Adrenaline Film Project is not only a fun event for our community– it truly helps to launch the careers of aspiring filmmakers. Adrenaline mentor and past participant Steve Robillard said, “As mentors, what we try to do is uplift that voice. Try to take the raw edges off of the talent that comes in and refine it into something that reaches audience and has the ability to move people.”
Light House Studio looks forward to sharing the work of this year’s filmmakers with the local community. We invite you to purchase your tickets today for the Adrenaline Film Project Screening on Saturday, November 11th at 8:00pm at the Vinegar Hill Theatre.
