ALEXANDRIA, VA (May 20, 2013) – For the seventh consecutive year, the Alexandria Film Festival will share a diverse selection of films with the greater Washington area. The films will be shown over four days, Nov. 7-10, among several sites in Alexandria. Some of Old Town’s most historic buildings will be venues.
“Alexandria is famous for its many art forms, from paintings and ceramics to theater and orchestra. We are so thrilled to be able to expand the city’s art offerings through film,” said Patti North, festival chair. She noted that due to the digital revolution the number and quality of independent films from around the world is rising exponentially.
There currently is a call for entries, which filmmakers can access at Withoutabox.com. Final film selections will be announced in September.
Besides the annual film festival, the organization is expanding its activities to include year-round offerings, providing cultural enrichment to Alexandrians and others.
Last year there were 40 films from 18 countries, including world, U.S. and D.C. area premieres. In addition to the films, the festival offers Q&As with filmmakers and presentations by guest speakers relating to the films.
The historic port city of Alexandria was founded in 1749, and is directly across the Potomac River from the nation’s capital.
