VIDEODROME

New 4K Restoration

Directed by DAVID CRONENBERG

Starring  JAMES WOODS   DEBORAH HARRY 

 

One of director David Cronenberg’s most disturbing, subversive thrillers. While searching for programs to boost ratings on his small cable station, jaded Max Renn (James Woods) becomes hooked on an underground TV show, “Videodrome,” that may be a genuine snuff video. But tracking down its source proves dangerous as lifelike hallucinations kick in, skewing Max’s very concept of reality, and his new girlfriend, talk-show host Nikki Brand (Blondie’s Deborah Harry), goes missing. “Long live the new flesh!”

FILM FESTIVAL

VALKYRIE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

VIFF showcases films directed by women of all backgrounds. We chose "Valkyrie International Film Festival" as our name because the Valkyries of Norse mythology were fierce warriors who symbolized strength and empowerment. We view every female director as a Valkyrie, and every woman as a Valkyrie; a force to be reckoned with that refuses to be silenced.

Our mission is to build an annual gathering that shines a spotlight on films created by women, and to advance the cause of women in film. VIFF is an event where female artists will support each other's work. We'll present "Superior Achievement" awards but don't view our festival as a competition.

VIFF was founded by Tamar Lamberson and her daughter, Kaelin Lamberson, and is scheduled to run during Women's History Month (March) each year.    

A limited # of Full Festival Pegasus Passes

are now available at our ticket desk  ($50)
