The Virginia Tech School of Performing Arts presents the 17th Annual Progeny Short Film Festival on Saturday, October 17, 2020 on the Moss Arts Center Lawn.

The Progeny Short Film Festival takes place annually in Blacksburg, Virginia. The festival aims to provide a platform for independent filmmakers and students around Southwest Virginia. Progeny seeks to uplift filmmakers producing thought-provoking content showcasing a diverse range of styles, genres, and interests. While Progeny is proud to uplift our local community, we also welcome submissions nationally and internationally.

The Progeny Short Film Festival will be held with the live band, Gloz, opening up the fest starting at 6:00 pm. In person attendance will be limited. The film screening begins at 6:30 pm followed by the awards ceremony.

Categories include: narrative, documentary, experimental, animated, Hokie, international and high school.

For the first time, the event will also be simultaneously live streamed on YouTube Live for those who cannot make the physical event. Both events require pre-registration.

Admission is free, but registration is required.
