Festival start: 11 April 2021      Festival end: 19 April 2021

Great expansion has come to The Northern Virginia International Film & Music Festival (The NOVA Fest) in its seventh season! After hosting several hundred films from over 30 countries, and celebrating industry leaders like Eduardo Sanchez of The Blaire Witch Project, Michael Uslan, the executive producer of JOKER and all modern BATMAN films and Russell Williams II, the first African-American to win back to back Academy Awards for his work on Glory and Dances With Wolves, we are also continuing our highly successful film market!

The CAPITAL FILM MARKET works in conjunction with The NOVA Fest and the Virginia Film Office to bring sales agents, domestic & international film offices and buyers from around the globe, searching for and buying new content. In the age of new media CAPITAL fully embraces and offers an environment to sell content to platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, iTunes, Google play and on and on.

Seminars, panels, receptions and party after party, lead up to an elaborate Oscar-style Awards Ceremony held at the Mosaic in Fairfax, Virginia, home of the beautiful Angelika Film Center! Welcome to the biggest festival and market of its kind in the United States of America!

Please be well during these incredibly provocative times!
