Experimental Film Virginia

Member of Trail Networks:
Virginia’s Eastern Shore Artisan Trail (site #97)

Experimental Film Virginia brings together artists from dance, film, and visual arts to make short films on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, inspired by local culture and echoes of vintage Americana. Art-Soaked Weekends bring live performance and music to celebrate this “glocal” gathering, attracting day tourists, art aficionados, vacationers, families and couples from the Eastern Shore to Hampton Roads and beyond. Our films and events capture, honor, revitalize and build local identity, economy, and a sense of community. We present a unique cultural tourism model with our films and events that capture the history and charm of our territory to share it with all of you.

During the two-week filmmaking artist residency, our art-soaked weekends offer live performance and music to celebrate this “glocal” gathering and bring artists and audiences together. Every July.
