Ongoing Opportunities

Contribute to the Virginia Voices documentary project

Virginia Voices is a documentary project partnered with the Virginia Historical Society. It's the first state-specific, crowd-sourced film of its kind – a modern historical documentary woven from the video submissions of residents like us. It will premiere at the Virginia Historical Society's 500-seat theater in Richmond this fall. In addition to the film, there will be an online interactive experience and database where visitors can browse, listen, and enjoy all submissions from throughout the state. But first, we need your help making it! The videos only need to be 10-15 minutes long, unedited, and can be shot on your phone, personal camera, or you can request a camera through our website. The video can answer any or all of the following questions: (1) WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PLACE? (2) WHAT'S YOUR FAMILY HISTORY? (3) WHAT'S IN YOUR BACKYARD? or (4) WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES? Thank you for participating in this exciting project ...
