Charlottesville – Adrenaline Film Project – Sept. 29 – Fee & Prizes

The Virginia Film Festival’s


Twelve Filmmaking Teams
Write – Cast – Shoot – Edit – Premiere
All in 72 hours

Now in its 14th year, the Adrenaline Film Project (AFP) is the Virginia Film Festival’s 72-hour, highly-caffeinated and highly-popular guerrillafilmmaking competition in which 10-12 teams of filmmakers compete for cash prizes by writing, shooting, editing, and screening their own 3-5 minute films with guidance from professional film industry mentors.

AFP provides a unique opportunity to gain professional mentorship while producing an original short film that will screen to the public.Adrenaline alum have found success in film through acceptances to film schools, submissions to Sundance, involvement in the creation of popular movies and television shows, and with starting their own production companies.

This year’s AFP mentors are Jeff Wadlow (Adrenaline founder, writer/director of Kick-Ass 2), Ben Haslup (producer of Shark Week), and Han West(producer of Lemon and Oh Lucy!).

NEW in 2017: AFP is moving out of the Festival proper and heading downtown to host its annual competitive screening and awards presentations on Saturday, October 21 at 7:00 PM at The Paramount Theater. Also new this year, the winners of the jury, mentor, audience, and acting awards will receive a cash prize and industry badges to the 2017 Virginia Film Festival.
