VAFF welcomes accredited media to attend and cover the festival. VAFF grants limited complimentary accreditation, in the form of a media pass valid for all Festival screenings (EXCEPT luncheons, receptions, galas and after-parties) to journalists who cover film on a regular basis for established media. Assigned passes are not transferable.
Due to limited space and high demand, we only offer media credentials to journalists who are providing substantial coverage before and during the Festival. Interested journalists must submit details of coverage and print samples of previous Film Festival coverage.
Selected media will receive working media passes to cover the receptions, galas, and after-parties as detailed below.
Working Media Pass
A limited number of Working Media Passes are available to assigned television crews, photographers, etc. This pass allows the crew to cover celebrity and VIP arrivals at the special event venue, and to cover the respective receptions, galas, luncheons and after-parties.
Please note this working pass does not admit the pass holder to any film screenings, luncheons, receptions, galas or after-parties.
Assigning editors or producers should email email@example.com with WORKING MEDIA PASS in the subject line to request a separate Working Media Pass.
Reception, Gala, and Party Invitations for Media
Attendance at all VAFF Receptions, Galas, Luncheons, and After-Parties is by invitation only.
Due to space limitations, we are not able to invite all accredited media to these special events. Special event invitations are issued at the discretion of the VAFF media office and the Special Events committee. A limited number of special event tickets are available for public purchase.
In addition to media releases, we send frequent email updates to media before and during the festival. If you wish to receive these emails, please make sure we have your current email address.
