Virginia Film Festival Celebates 2013 Results

The Virginia Film Festival had another record-breaking year. Organizers say the box office sales topped $120,000, and that’s an 11% improvement over last year’s results. 35 of this fall’s screenings were sellouts. The highlights included the screening of the new movie “Nebraska” with Will Forte and Bruce Dern, and a 50th anniversary spotlight on the Alfred Hitchcock classic “The Birds.” There was a special November 8th appearance by actress Tippi Hedren (pictured), who made her film debut in “The Birds.”
