As sad as we are to announce this, we do hope to eventually bring Filmily Fest back in some shape or form! We built this festival on the idea that people all across the film community in Hampton Roads should work together, support and encourage one another. After running this festival, we have seen how this community can pull together to be nurturing and welcoming amoung new, transient and mainstays of our community. We encourage others to be leaders in the community, to run events, to unify this sprawling film community and to always make efforts towards friendship. We have seen first hand how much of an impact can can be made when we build others up, draw inspiration from one another, show camaraderie, and lend a hand when needed.
We’ve enjoyed the ride thus far – and we’re excited to see what the future has in store 😉
