Not only will there be film screenings but also panels and workshops taking place over the weekend. And of course, the international festival wouldn't be complete without the nightly after parties. An awards ceremony will be held as well.

The film festival will conclude with an awards ceremony including awards for merit in several categories and the Audience Award. $3,500.00 in prize money will be awarded. Each person in attendance will be able to vote for the Audience award which includes a $1000.00 prize plus trophy.

Tickets for the Victory International Film Festival are $15 for opening night on Thursday, September 9th. Saturday and Sunday, September 10th and 11th are $10 for single day tickets or you can purchase a 3-Day VIP pass for just $25 and you can purchase them in advance by visiting VictoryIFF.com. All of the proceeds from the weekend go to support Friends of Victory as they work to bring a new marquee for the historic Victory Theatre - a sort of 100th birthday gift, if you will. The festival has already raised and donated $5,000 towards the cost of the new marquee.

Ahead of the festival in September, an Announcement Part is planned at Haynie's Corner Brewing Company for August 15th, where the selected films will be announced.
