Filmmaker Q & As

At VBWFF we’ve invited the filmmakers to attend and conduct a Q&A after their film. This is your opportunity to hear how their vision made it on to the big screen.

Pass Holder Lines for Films

There will be 3 lines for entrance to films: Priority Pass Holders, General Pass Holders and Day Pass Holders.  Priority Pass Holders will be seated 30 minutes prior to the start time of each screening.  General Pass holders will be seated 15 minutes prior to the start of each film followed by Day Pass holders.

Arrive Early

To start the film on time, we must seat many people in a very short time frame. Allow plenty of time for your transportation, especially on weekend nights.

Seats cannot be held

You must be present to take a seat. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are not in your seat at show time your seat may be given to someone else.

We take movies seriously

Please silence your wrappers, voices, communication devices and alarms to ensure a quality audience experience.
