About The Festival
Welcome to the Pocahontas Reframed “Storytellers” Film Festival. We would like to thank all our Sponsors, Partners, Volunteers, and especially, you – the public, for supporting our efforts to bring these great films by and about Native people to the fabulous Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and other venues. The growth of our Festival would not have been possible without the financial support of our Founding Sponsor, Francis Ford Coppola.
Ticket details coming September 1 2021. Stay tuned!
Join Us for 2020's Mini Virtual Festival
The 2020 Pocahontas Reframed “Storytellers” Film Festival has been postponed until November 19-21, 2021 due to COVID 19. The safety and health of our audience and our filmmakers, and the devastating effect of the virus makes this call necessary. We had a great Festival planned and this postponement will give us a chance to bring even more great films and performers to Virginia in 2021. Stay tuned to our website and social media platforms for an exciting announcement about a virtual experience coming this November. The organizers of the Festival wish you and your families will stay safe and remain healthy. We would also like to acknowledge two grants that were awarded this year from Virginia Film Office and Virginia Humanities. Our new Venue for the Festival is the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA).
The Leslie Cheek Theatre
VIRGINIA MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, or VMFA, a Richmond, Virginia landmark, opened to the public in 1936. Its purpose is to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret art, to encourage the study of the arts, and thus to enrich the lives of all. Historically significant and conveniently located, the Leslie Cheek Theatre within the VMFA now serves as the festival’s primary location.
