"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."
Paul A. Levengood, president and chief executive officer
The Virginia Historical Society stepped into the world of film, through a project called Virginia Voices.
Virginia Voices is a 40-minute film made up of crowdsourced video recorded and submitted by regular citizens. The VHS assembled the videos into a single narrative that gives audiences an overview of the commonwealth, its people and their stories. The film is a fully-funded project of the VHS’s wider Story of Virginia Campaign, a $38 million effort that will expand, enhance and renew the Society’s presence both in Virginia and across the nation.
Virginia Voices premiered at the Virginia Historical Society in the spring of 2015 and was produced by Jeff Boedeker and BPI.
