          • Testimony
            2014-2016, MFA Film

            I never thought that low Residency could be so rewarding but my work at VCFA has been a positive experience. I high recommend the program to anyone who wants to pursue an MFA in Film but perhaps does not have time to go to a traditional program.

          • Testimony

            Not only is VCFA's faculty filled with fantastic writers, but the low residency format allows me to continue writing and working in the "real" world.
