Now in its 14th year, the Adrenaline Film Project (AFP) is the Virginia Film Festival’s 72-hour, highly-caffeinated and highly-popular guerrilla filmmaking 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.
NEW in 2017: The winning teams of the jury, mentor, and audience awards will receive $1,000 cash prizes and Industry Badges to the 2017 Virginia Film Festival. Also new this year, 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.
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.
The 2017 Adrenaline Film Project is presented by Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Central Virginia
and supported by The Paramount Theater, the Robertson Media Center at the University of Virginia Library, UVA Arts Council, and the Virginia Film Office.
