"Virginians from all walks of life, and all parts of the state added their stories to ‘Virginia Voices.' I’m excited that we produced a film that captured the great diversity of our commonwealth."
Andrew Talkov, Vice President for Programs
Virginia Voicesis the first state-specific, crowdsourced film of its kind. For more than a year the Virginia Historical Society collected stories from people in more than fifty locations across the commonwealth. The resulting film is a snapshot of Virginia as told by the people who live and work here.
Virginia Voices (22 minutes) is shown daily at the Virginia Historical Society in the Robins Family Forum on the hour and on the half-hour beginning at 10:00 a.m. with the last screening at 4:30 p.m. The film was a fully funded project of the VHS’s wider Story of Virginia Campaign, a $38 million effort to expand, enhance, and renew the society’s presence both in Virginia and across the nation.
Virginia Voices was produced by Orange Frame using archived footage in the collection of the Virginia Historical Society and based on an earlier film by BPI that premiered at the Virginia Historical Society in the spring of 2015.
