Every year, UVA partners with hundreds of artists from directors and actors to Oscar-winning makeup artists and legendary poets for five nights of movie magic. Jody Kielbasa is the head of it all as not only the Vice Provost for the Arts at UVA but also the Director of the annual Virginia Film Festival.
Mr. Kielbasa elaborates on the extraordinary opportunity and entertainment the festival brings not only to the students at UVA (who can get FREE tickets to all shows) but to the broader Charlottesville community as well.
This year, Jon Batiste, Ava DuVernay, and Nikki Giovanni are only SOME of the talented artists coming to the Downtown Mall and Culbreth Theatre. Mr. Kielbasa tells all in this episode of PodCavs.
