The Seventh Annual VOB Film Festival is a one of a kind gathering of film makers, film lovers, great places to visit and creative ideas. The event takes place during Labor Day weekend from August 30th - September 2nd, 2018. The VOB screens films from around the US and around the World. We are looking for great stories, new ideas and always something different. Films are shown throughout scenic Putnam County, NY - a great place to visit and stay for the weekend. We also host film panels, special guests and informational sessions during the event. We may use your film at some of our independent film nights in our own theater.

Overall Rating
  • It was very exciting to have our short film "Old World New" (2017) screened at VOB. The staff graciously put up with my tardiness in getting the film to them, just knowing that our little Russian language project was able to find a home in your corner of the world heartens all involved, thank you.

    The organizers of this film festival are passionate cinemaphiles who are dedicated to bringing a wide range of quality movies to the region. Their commitment shows in all aspects of the film festival, from the communications to the screenings. Bravo! It was an honor to have my short "Two Landscapes" screened in the VOB film festival.
