Virginia is for Film Lovers

Charlottesville hosts Virginia Film Festival.

Festival Director Richard Herkowitz says that 'Speed' "doesn't necessarily mean fast. While many of the films will quicken the pulse of audiences, we will also be exploring the flip side of that. … we'll examine the work of directors who favor the long take over the quick cut." To that end, there will be screenings of Terrence Malick's "Days of Heaven" (1978), Yasujiro Ozu's "Late Autumn" (1960) and Robert Bresson's French classic "Pickpocket" (1959). The Festival runs from Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 28-31. Screenings throughout Charlottesville cost $6-$10. Visit for the festival schedule, or call (800) 882-3378. — Daryl Grove
