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.

Buffalo native VINCENT GALLO wrote and directed this epic tale of lost dreams and redemption in his city of no illusions.
Released from prison after doing five years for a crime he didn’t commit, Billy Brown (writer-director-star Vincent Gallo) is determined to prove to his estranged parents that he is not the loser they think he is. His plan: kidnap a beautiful tap dancer, Layla (Christina Ricci) and force her to pretend to be his loving wife.
"Filmed on reversal stock with high-saturation color to ape the appearance of NFL Films highlight reels, it’s one of the most aesthetically influential films of the decade—and one of the funniest. While many more heralded titles of its day have been forgotten, it continues spanning time." - Metrograph
